Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

Responding to my inquiry about the windows that have recently been removed from the Pattern Shop Lofts building on the south side of Third and Tingey streets in The Yards, the folks at Forest City have let me know that interior demolition work is indeed underway on the World War I-era building. The existing interior walls, ceilings, plumbing, asbestos {cough} and whatnot is all being removed, in preparation for the actual construction/renovation work that is scheduled to begin later this year. Two floors will be added to the top of the building as part of its transformation into a 170-unit apartment building, which will also have 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. It's expected to be finished next year. (Its neighbor across Third Street, the Boilermaker Shop, is currently out for bid, and construction is expected to begin this summer to turn it into a 46,000-sq-ft retail space by fall 2009.)
Meanwhile, work has stopped at the 1345 South Capitol Street site (directly across from the ballpark), with the old buildings demolished and the site mostly cleared. Camden Development has been planning a 276-unit apartment building for this location, but I've been told that the company is "trying to decide what to do" with the project.

Man, I was hoping that the Boilermaker Shop would come first. The neighborhood desperately needs retail more than residential or office at this point. Without retail/restaurants/bars, it will be hard to attract the sort of influx that these developers hope for. Then again, it's a chicken/egg argument... since retail won't come til people do.

Also- the fact that Camden has stopped its project is a bad sign for the others expected to come online. Not to be a pessimist!! :)

I am quite optimistic about this area. One thing that gives me this feeling is that transwestern is starting to build massive office/retail space here. They have a branch that does research for other firms on how well office real estate will do in different areas of the country. Apparently, it will do so well here that they are building office/retail space themselves ...in a really large way.
