Dozens of community leaders and dignitaries gathered today for a groundbreaking ceremony and the unveiling of plans for the Park Lane Mall site.
The project, at Plumb Lane and Virginia Street, is 46 acres and will feature a mix of residential and commercial spaces. The vacant lot is expected to be transformed into parking garages, a park, brew pubs, a fitness center, and 1,600 apartments.
The apartments will range from studios up to 3-bedroom units. Homes are being built too.
“Multi-family homes will be available in several five-story ‘wrap’ structures where residences wrap around parking garages for easy access and (concealed) parking from the street, as well as urban-garden buildings with private garages to accommodate…a variety of different lifestyles and needs,” said developer Chip Bowlby.
Watch a livestream video of the event below. The action starts at about 13 minutes into the video.
