Springfield-based developer The Vecino Group is adding to its portfolio of buildings downtown.
The company recently broke ground on a planned four-story apartment building at 310 N. Jefferson Ave., to be known as Cresco.
Like Sky Eleven, The U and The Sterling — three Vecino Group projects a block away — the project's 106 beds will be marketed to college students, Vecino's Director of Student Housing Tim Roth said.
This is the site currently.


What the site will look like in the future.

Between the Brewery District Lofts and the newly announced Cresco Apartments, there's a change from renovating and refurbishing all of the old towers downtown into lofts and apartments to new construction that's filling in blighted areas or parking lots. It's great to see the city encouraging development where about 50 years ago they tore down large portions of the downtown core to build parking lots and more modern office buildings. Hopefully this trend continues.

No new development, but just doing a little bragging on my adopted hometown, Hotel Vandivort was named by "Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association" as the boutique hotel of the year. It's really great to see Springfield get recognition even if it is just a small city. I posted about the hotel on the previous page. If you're ever in Springfield I would recommend staying there.

Developer Tom Rankin confirms Springfield Plaza, located near West Bypass at West Sunshine Street (Missouri 413), will be anchored by a Burlington Coat Factory, Petco, and Ross Dress For Less. While Ross already has an existing Springfield location, this will be the first Petco in Springfield, and the first Burlington store in southern Missouri. The name of a fourth main tenant, an national shoe retailer, has not yet been announced. This phase one of the district will include at least 90,000 square feet of retail space, and will be located just west of the current Walmart.

Hopefully, we'll see a lot more of this happening downtown. Columbia, Lawrence, and Iowa City are exploding with that kind of development!!

We will see, now that the city has run out of older buildings to use for residential, the next logical options are building new residentials. I've also noticed that the city has been making moves to gentrify the neighborhood west of MSU campus and south of Downtown.

Full-time enrollment has grown nearly 13 percent in the past five years, and demand for on-campus housing has forced the university to get creative with existing space.
Big questions loom, however, including where to construct a traditional 400-bed dormitory and how to pay for that expense while also launching a major overhaul of Woods House, which was built 45 years ago.
"We are at a point that our growth is going to essentially cap out, given the residential housing we have, unless we expand," said MSU President Clif Smart. "We have, for several months, been working a proposal.

If approved, the new residence hall could open as early as the 2019-20 school year.
The board, in deciding to move forward, would also have to weigh in on a final location. Several options are on the table, including:
• A university-owned lot on Walnut Street, just south of Kentwood Hall
• Privately owned property on Holland Avenue, across from Strong Hall
• A site that would replace an existing parking lot."

Just some construction pictures of the last phases of Bear Village. Right of the building being built in the top picture, it looks like they're laying the foundation for what I believe will be the last building, which will be at the corner of Grand and Kimbrough. The bottom picture is an additional building behind the main complex. Though the whole complex is better than the ugly blighted houses that used to be there, I wish the buildings that were along Kimbrough had some retail options at the street level. The street is two blocks away from the campus and Kimbrough is a heavily traveled thoroughfare so I feel like there was a really missed opportunity here, but I digress.

Very exciting news!

"After months of deliberating, Missouri State announced plans to move forward with a new residence hall. The university's Board of Governors signed off on plans to hire a consultant to design a 400-bed, "traditional-style" hall aimed at freshmen along Holland Avenue, on the west side of campus. If everything falls into place, students could move in fall 2019."

"A Springfield-based hotelier recently purchased a downtown office building, and hopes to convert it into a hotel catering to millennials.

Tim O'Reilly, founder and CEO of O'Reilly Hospitality Management, told the News-Leader Monday that his company has received preliminary approval from Maryland-based lodging giant Marriott International to turn the 430 South Avenue building into a Moxy hotel.
"It's very modern, and alternative," O'Reilly said of the brand. "It's very different from anything Springfield has."
