For the foreseeable future we plan to continue to operate as-is the north parcel where Starbucks and Walgreens are located. The south parcel is scheduled for redevelopment in early 2018. Feedback we received from the community has been incorporated into our designs. The project is envisioned as a vibrant, community-oriented mixed-use development that reflects the Central Area’s unique heritage and culture, offering approximately 530 residential apartment homes for a variety of income levels and approximately 46,000 square feet of retail space for a grocery store and micro-, small- and medium-sized local shops and services. The development also incorporates a large landscaped plaza, a mid-block connection and a community room that can be reserved by the public.
