    Jeffery Park is a mix of rental and owner occupied. The townhouse are technically single family homes. Also, lower priced housing? The Foundry starts out at $1,000 per month for ~600 sqft. I wouldn’t consider that anywhere near lower priced.

    Yeah, there’s also a $1600 one bedroom and I guarantee the single family homes will go for $450k and up. This isn’t exactly for paupers.

    I don’t know if this is in reference to my comment on ‘lower priced’, Ned’s comment, or is unrelated to either, but I just want to say I was not implying that any of the housing was lower priced, just that there is a need for lower priced apartments in and near downtown. That would include ‘workforce’ housing that would be below market rate.

    With demand so high, I don’t understand why the city is not asking(or demanding) that developers make at least a portion of the units(even if only ten percent) workforce, and if not in the exact complex, than at least nearby.

    If this has nothing to do with your comment, than nevermind. ;)

    (ten or fifteen years ago people would have lost their sh*t at rents at 1.5 to 2 dollars a square foot!!!…now it seems rather common. :( )

    Much different than the original proposal. A lot more lower-priced apartments packed in.

    I think this was the comment I was responding to, and he discussion that followed. No offense implied on my end, its just that these are the opposite of ‘lower-priced.’ Maybe Ned will make the argument that he is referring to building quality and materials, which I can accept more but still would argue with. Even with design flaws, these are likely built with more high quality materials due to design review and guidelines than elsewhere around the city.

    Couple of new photos from this past weekend featuring the new for-sale townhomes and the near-completed Community Center:

    The Hoof Hearted sign went up yesterday. I was talking to the head of maintenance for the building, and it sounded like they were trying to get the place up and running in the next week or two, but one of the leasing managers at The Foundry said they’d expect it to be more toward the end of January.

    A & R Creative Group will be partnering for the culinary side of things with Hoof Hearted, so that should be pretty interesting.

    Remember when “Town Homes” meant this?

    There are still townhomes downtown that look like that. More developments like that would be welcome, I imagine.

    I think Franklinton, being almost blank slate, would be a great opportunity to bring back more brownstone style townhomes in a larger scale way but I doubt we’d see that with so many different investors, getting them unified for a design is unlikely.

    Downtown, you have semblances of them in two places as is: Neighborhood Launch and LC’s The Annex development.

    The areas north of Neighborhood Launch would strike me as fertile ground for similar developments, along Fourth Street and extending east–but I have a feeling there are other plans in the works there.

    Maybe there’s a room for a mix. I’ve thought (or assumed?) that this area will eventually end up as a mix of expanded hotel and convention space closer to the Convention Center and a mix of student housing and classroom buildings closer to CSCC/CCAD until they meet in the middle around BalletMet.

    The brownstones in that picture aren’t exactly a unified design. They’re probably super expensive nowadays and a lot of the craft has been lost. It’s not like the world is full of unemployed stone masons anymore. I wonder what it would cost to build something like that new?
