UPDATE: This project has changed since the original post below. It now is 420 apartments, in a 216-foot, 18-story building. The site plan below has also changed. See this post for new details:
This land is currently a brownfield adjacent to Berry Lane Park, in a very low-rise and industrial section of the city. It was previously the home of a Steel Technologies Corp steel plant.
The city had planned to acquire this site to expand Berry Lane Park. But it seems they never came up with the money.
Now a developer has proposed a 210-foot, 20-story tower on the site, with up to 375 apartment units. An existing Steel Technologies foundry building would be repurposed into a multi-level parking garage. A rec center would also be built on site, as well as the possibility of a 14,000 sq ft grocery store along Communipaw Ave.
5% of units would be designated as affordable housing.
This one would need a zoning change from the City Council to happen, so it’s very preliminary.
Here is the link to the proposed zoning amendment:
