With the Foundry Lofts
having quickly reached 100 percent leasing earlier this year, and construction underway on the Twelve12
residential building with a Harris Teeter at 4th and M, it's interesting to hear that Forest City is starting to move on its next residential project at the Yards
, an 11-story 325ish-unit rental building right next door to the Foundry Lofts, on the southwest corner of 4th and Tingey
(where a parking lot now resides, across from the Trapeze School). That would also put it just to the south of the under-construction Boilermaker Shops
retail pavilion and kitty
-corner from Twelve12.
That's all I know at this point--more will be revealed as the bureaucratic hoops are jumped through.
With thanks to Z. in the comments, here are some renderings, via the slides for the upcoming NCPC presentation
, which has additional details. Note how the height of the building steps up so that it's not at its full 11-story height directly next to the six-story Foundry Lofts. And remember, these are just the 35 percent drawings--details are still to be fleshed out, and perhaps changed.
The view on the left is looking down 4th at Tingey
; the right is looking pretty much from the Lumber Shed/Yards Park to the northeast.
Also worth mentioning, the design calls for 21,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and 250-300 parking spaces in a three-level underground garage.
