    I noticed in the Easton leasing brochure there are future plans for several new apartments buildings between the main shopping center and the new Easton Gateway. Also several new apartment buildings on the north side of the mall fronting Morse Road. Anyone have any idea when this next phase will start?

    Wow that looks like a terrible place to live! At least at the Commons on the south side you have nice views of empty lots and it’s relatively quiet. Up there you’d have views of the third-world country Walmart and people cursing themselves as they try to leave Easton traffic.

    You said it! And yet they will all sell for some reason.

    Really?

    I mean… I agree that an apartment facing Morse Road traffic wouldn’t really be ideal, but some of the other views would be totally fine. And with all of the shopping, dining and entertainment that Easton currently offers, the WalkScore of apartments there would be through the roof.

    It’s not quite urban living but you’re stuck between two huge congested commercial zones… but you’re out at Easton. I guess it’s going to work for The Yard but I still feel Easton is a whole different monster by being sandwiched between two “malls”, 270, and Morse road. Just not my cup of mixed use tea.

    Its only a matter of time until the southeast parcel (Shrine center) is developed into retail/office as well.

    Surprisingly the Easton Commons apartments across from Crate & Barrel only have WalkScore of 62, can’t imagine the new apartments’ location would be much better.

    The Easton Commons apartments are south of everything. There’s nothing to walk to east, west or south.

    Those new apartments look a little more centrally located between Easton Town Center and Easton Gateway.

    I adjusted the location and it actually went down.

    Are the current apartments on the south side all rented/owned? Last I heard, they had a bunch that were vacant. Maybe 2-3 years ago.

    It is like they just gave up on any more development and just said “fill it all in with apartments”.
    No thank you.

    Residential is the one thing lacking over there. It’s more than I would have expected, granted this is just a rough rendering and who knows how much of that will actually be residential. I kind of envisioned the corner of Easton Way and Stetzer Road as prime office space. It’s better than more quasi-walkable strip malls though. The roads around these apts really should have bike lanes so that residents can get around a little easier. It wouldn’t take much at all to do that.

    Overall, I think it fills in nicely, as far as suburban shopping centers go.
