The Community Housing Network has delayed getting approval for a 40-unit housing project on East Rich Street from the city’s Downtown Commission while the nonprofit works on a few lingering design issues with another city panel.
The Hawthorn Grove Apartments plan for independent living rental units for those with mental illnesses did not receive approval from the Historic Resources Commission at that panel’s Oct. 18 meeting. Full approval of the proposed project at 546-558 E. Rich St. would have allowed it to take a fully vetted project to the Downtown Commission on Tuesday.October 22, 2012 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #516890
I think that is a very nice location for something like this. There are a lot of social services within close proximity. It is good to hear they are working with the commissions on design.October 23, 2012 3:12 am at 3:12 am #516891
Agreed.October 23, 2012 12:20 pm at 12:20 pm #516892
I remember when they were planning market rate there. It is a nice location, very close to the library and topiary park.October 23, 2012 1:36 pm at 1:36 pm #516893
I wonder what the design issues are? Seems like the front facade was conditionally approved…the rear of the building must be in question?October 23, 2012 1:39 pm at 1:39 pm #516894
Are there any details on the scope of people who will be living there (type or cause of mental health issues)?February 5, 2013 12:43 am at 12:43 am #516895

Hawthorn Grove Apartments construction getting underway downtown
The 40-unit Hawthorn Grove Apartments begins taking shape downtown this week.
The $6 million, three-story project will offer 39 one-bedroom apartments to those disabled by mental illness. It also will have a unit for the apartment community’s resident manager.June 23, 2014 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm #1025962
Where exactly is this? I did a Google search of the address and it looks to be where Rich Street turns a corner and heads south. Not sure if this is the exact lot because it seems pretty small. There are 2 other larger lots in the area also.June 23, 2014 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #1025964
It’s right East of the curve on the North side of Rich,December 1, 2014 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #1052732
Snapped a few pics of this project over the weekend… what an improvement from the huge surface lot!

Nice! I always forget to grab photos of that spot. You’ve really got to specifically loop over there by car if you want to drive past it.February 3, 2015 10:39 am at 10:39 am #1062041
