The agenda for Tuesday’s CAR meeting includes a listing for 504-510 N 28TH ST “construct new multi-family residences. An email from Laura Daab sheds some light on the project and shares some renderings (PDF):
This is a multi family project that is going up on four single family lots. […] There is a R-53 zoning designation in place that would allow for this type of development similar to the Oakwoods condo project. […] The developer, Related Properties, LLC/Sterling Properties/Josh Bilder has not presented to the CHA or any other entity.
The developer had a similar project, except it was mixed use that he wanted to build at 600 N.28th Street and the neighbors were able to block that version of his project for the time being. The developer is getting this in before the zoning change which will be R-8. According to the assessor’s records he doesn’t own all the lots (he owns one), but we believe that he wants to get his spec project approved before he commits to buying the properties. There is still a “For Sale” sign in front of the properties.
