Courier Square

Due to the sheer size and scope of this project, I believe it deserves its own thread. 

 

The project, part of a long-term redevelopment of 12 acres, includes apartments, office and retail space on 2.8 acres at the corner of Meeting and Columbus streets. Development will happen in 6 phases with buildings inside the area boxed in by St. Phillips, Spring, Meeting and Line Streets.

 
Earlier this week, BAR decided a few changes will need to be made before the project can go any further. Evening Post Industries, which is spearheading the project, is still hoping to start construction on phase one in the fall of 2014.
 
Here are a few proposed renderings:

First phase of COurier Square set to open in 1st Quarter

The approximately $100 million project will feature 226 one- and two-bedroom multifamily units on eight floors surrounding a 650-space parking deck. It will also feature 70,000 square feet of office space and ground-floor retail space in 19,000 square feet along Meeting and Columbus streets.

The apartment part of the structure is called The Guild. Rental rates start at just under $2,000 a month and go to more than $8,000 for a top-floor penthouse, according to The Guild's website.

Phase 2 of the Evening Post Industries' Courier Square development may be on the horizon as they seek approval at the Feb 21  BAR meeting to demolish 631, 633, 635 and 637 King Street.

Courier Square is ready to start leasing residential units (a/k/a The Guild) with Greystar moving its HQ staff into the building this summer.  Will be interesting to see who leases the retail and restaurant space.

Courier Square Phase II  again goes before the BAR this coming week for conceptual approval.  Phase II is an upscale senior living facility proposed for 609 Ki ng St.  I believe this is the 3rd attempt for approval.

Phase II did receive conceptual approval at last week's BAR meeting.   I don't think I've ever witnessed such excitement from BAR members over a proposed design.

I should add that the review and approval was for Bldg #1 only.  I believe there's a total of 3 buildings that make up Phase II.   Phase II Bldg 1 is a mixed-use building at 635 King St. 

Also wanted to add that the BAR approved demolishing the old Post & Courier main office and printing press at last month's meeting.

I am looking forward to seeing Phase II. I am hopeful part of it will be condos, not apartments.
