More Neighborhood Launch Condos Approved
The Edward Companies is taking the next step towards filling in the nine-block footprint of their Neighborhood Launch development. They received approval at this week’s Downtown Development Commission to start construction on another block of the Bishop’s Walk condominiums on Gay Street.
The new condos will include 13 two-story townhomes, with 12 garden units on the ground floor and one bridge unit. They will stretch from Normandy Avenue to Sixth Street, and will feature identical exteriors to the first phase of Bishop’s Walk, which was completed in 2010 and extends from Fifth Street to Normandy. All but one of the original Bishop’s Walk units has been sold, as have all units in the other completed Neighborhood Launch buildings on Gay, Fourth and Fifth Streets.
Kim Ulle, Vice President of Edwards Companies, said that they hope to start construction on the new units by mid-fall of this year. She also said that construction of two 130-unit apartment buildings just to the north on Long Street should be completed by the end of the year. Also currently under construction and projected for completion at year’s end is the development’s community center, which will be located in the church building at the corner of Sixth Street and Long that most recently housed the Faith Mission soup kitchen and offices.
