The desire to revive our neighborhood to resemble the bustling community it once was is the inspiration for this mixed-use development.
Looking at the existing site:
It is 5.5 acres, abandoned buildings, Brownfields (remediation is in process), Traffic modifications have been happening (Central Ave. is now a two-way), Trails, focus on Transit Oriented Development, and has been re-zoned to C-3-C.
TIF Improvements are in process and planned for more to come:
Improvements are: Alleys (blue), Parking lots, Stormwater, utilities (orange), and site beautification (green). The white are the structure locations.
The Proposed Project, Developer Improvements:
Affordable housing development, commercial/retail development, Market rate housing development, real estate acquisition, and senior housing development.
This will happen in two phases. Phase one is two buildings at 127,440 Sf and Phase Two – three buildings at 126,621 sf. 151 Parking spaces, Playground, and a picnic shelter.
In Phase one (the orange buildings) there will be 114 affordable rent units, the picnic shelter and playground.
In Phase two (the yellow buildings), there will be commercial/retail and affordable and market rate units.
