Proposal up on Development Mapper for the Zona Lofts lot. Four stories of parking topped by four stories of apartments. Can’t say I’m ecstatic about the look of it – half the building is parking. Although I suppose this could be an amenity if it can be a public parking deck that serves the entire South Slope.
This site is located at 150 Coxe Ave.
So the development beat goes on for the South Slope, with real estate every bit as hot as property in downtown proper. Several other South Slope projects are in the works, several centered on the former Standard Paper building on Banks, which will be home to Vortex Doughnuts. Word on the street is that a bar and restaurant also plan to located in that building. In the meantime, the Chrysler building is already being renovated.
Folks will remember that about four years ago, the plan was to build a 13-story residential condo building on this site. The project was called Zona Lofts. The recession hit and the project didn’t go off. The site has been a giant pit in the years since.
For orientation regarding the above photo of the pit, the Chrsyler building is to the right and the new Twin Leaf brewery is to the left.
