Description: The development's first phase would rehabilitate some of the vacant manufacturing and warehouse buildings into about 220 apartments and surface parking. The units could be available beginning late next year, giving the Canal Walk a needed spark and connecting its two disjointed sections by removing buildings that sit atop the path, said Richard Souter, vice president of The WVS Cos.<br /><br />Longer-term, the proposal envisions construction of a high-rise tower along South 10th Street and new buildings on the 6-acre property's eastern edge, by the Lady Byrd Hat building on Virginia Street.
