The Zoning and Planning committee denied this appeal, so this would appear to be in the clear.

Have there been any additional appeals filed on this? I don’t think anybody answered my question up thread; is this a planned unit development? I mean is this development planed to be built at once or in several stages?

Although I have read some of the previous posts, I'm still not completely sure on the status of this property.

However, I do know that there appears to be a new CBRE "Now Available" sign up on the building. This seems to conflict with the previously announced plans..?

That's probably for the retail space in the new building. They have been doing boring, soil samples, etc. Looks like demo could start any week now.

I walked by last weekend and the Sons of Norway building looked liked there was demo going on inside and there was a bunch of equipment out in the parking lot as well.

If my understanding is correct, this development will take up a few properties just south of the sons of Norway building on the western side of the block. Are there still people living in those houses?

Just left the Sons of Norway area. Talk to one of the construction workers and he said that construction will start on June 1. I’m guessing he means construction/demolition. They haven’t started fencing off the parking lot, but they do have Jersey barriers inside the parking lot.

They have the Jersey barriers up around the building now. Talked to one of the construction workers today, and he said they are currently working on disconnecting the utilities. He told me that demolition should be occurring around June 11 or 12th.

I'm glad to see the vintage brown brick apartment stays! It provides a good break between the two monoliths. It's owned by a separate developer, and one article says it won't be demolished. Perhaps it's protected? They certainly won't get as much sun as they're used to today.

Speak of sun, where are the solar panels on those giant flat roofs? :idea:

I think that small brick building is condos. Might have just been too much effort to buy out each owner.

Am I the only one who likes mansard roofs?

I feel bad for anyone who Ray now lives in that small apartment building. That’s going to absolutely suck during construction

I like them! I think they make the building look more refined and expensive.

types of roofs are like anything else, if they're authentic and done well they're great if they're cheap and inappropriate they look horrible.

On This project they look pretty decent, on any number of 70s modern apartment buildings... not so much.

this is an old render right? I thought mansard roof is gone in current design (render below), which is a bummer.

Drove by here on Monday and snapped a picture from the passenger seat through the fence. Looks like demolition has begun

Hate to be anyone who works the night shift living in that building. No sleep for you.
