Construction of high-rise Bankier Apartments begins on Green Street

By Janelle O'Dea | Staff writer | Updated 4 months ago

Gameday Spirit is gone from the corner of Sixth and Green, but not for long.

The school spirit shop was demolished this week for a new Bankier Apartments high-rise apartment building. But the popular store will be back in its familiar spot after the building is completed.

Margie Colter, property manager at Bankier Apartments, said Gameday has leased the entire ground level commercial space in the new building and plans to move back sometime in 2014.

Colter said the building will be ready for leasing by August 2014. Above Gameday will be three levels of parking, and the rest of the 14 stories will be dedicated to student housing.

Despite what the article says (it is 4 months old) the building is currently very much under construction; they were putting up a crane a couple days ago. Will post pictures soon. Oddly I couldn't find any renderings...

Anything happening with the hotel across the street next to Legends, the IHOP tower, or the former College Corner Mall site?

The college corner mall site is still just a big hole in the ground (more than 2 years after demolition!), IHOP has not been demolished yet and the site next to legends is still a parking lot (didn't know that was going to be a hotel). Hopefully one of those will start soon too

Here's some pictures of the construction - note how huge the crane is compared to everything around it. This thing is gonna be massive.
