xegPgNK.pngLevel 1 is comprised of secured parking (21,152 SF), retail space (2,686 SF), and an amenity center (5,868 SF).  Level 2 has an outdoor terrace sitting area (1,600 SF).  119 Units totaling 103,221 SF. Exterior façade is EIFS and Hardi board. 

 

Looks like they copy/pasted the design of the Hamilton in downtown at the corner of pierce and hamilton.

Looks like The Block Companies is going to be the builder.

Based on the project name and description, this seems to be a separate project. Unless Mark Dana Corp is out, which seem unlikely given the massive about of subsidies they have lined up.

Nice! I just came across the City Council agenda approving grant funds to this project. And Caroline Street remodel is getting close in this area. Full steam ahead.

Asbestos abatement in progress at the small building on the corner. My guess is it will be down in a couple weeks.

The graffiti on the side of the building was painted over today.
It's possible that the owner wants to avoid a citation from the COH (the fines can be pretty steep).
Still, it seems odd to take this measure if demolition is imminent.

I haven't seen an approved demo permit, so maybe it's just easier to apply a layer of CYA paint to avoid the fine like you said. Hopefully Rowdy doesn't notice the blank canvas!

They must have noticed my comment about Rowdy and rushed to the permit office 🤣

Good follow-up! Thanks.
Wonder if the entire building site will be fenced off once demolition is complete. Local businesses will probably hate to lose several free parking spaces.

Spotted demolition equipment parked behind the building today, and the dumpster serving Eleven-Eleven has been removed.
Guessing it will be gone by the end of the week.

They're wasting no time on this project. At this pace, the building might very well be taking shape by year's end.

There's a waste water sign on the fence that says something along the lines of Q3 2022 completion (I think it was Oct, but don't remember). Still very fast considering the size of the project
