Gorgeous!










Demo of the existing parking garage has started.






And not to be outdone, the developer of the 33 story "The Blackbird" tower has announced a December groundbreaking.

Encouraging news on the DSM highrise front (which is seemingly taking forever), the 39 story 'The Fifth' project is increasing to 40 floors, and has signed on 21c Museum Hotels as the hotel anchor. They will now occupy 12 floors in the building with 131 rooms and a 7,000 sq. ft. art exhibit space. Construction is supposed to commence on phase I this summer, with additional phases starting in 2019 for entire project completion in 2021. An 8-screen dine-in movie theater with reclining seats is expected to be the last phase of the project.

All of the approvals are now in place for phase I of the Gray's Station development to begin. This 75-acre development sits on the fringe of downtown on a reclaimed industrial brownfields site. Phase I will include 200 multi-family units and 89 townhomes. Additional phases will be built that could someday contain up to 1,100 to 1,400 dwelling units.

Some of the larger units are proposed to have their own elevators in the units and will approach the $1 million dollar mark.

Phase I

Linc Apartments




Rowhomes
