420 Church St. | 9-Story Residential

Recommended Posts

I drove by just now and work is fully underway. BUT, I am hopeful that some of the trees may stay. It seems like the ones closest to the sidewalk MIGHT be spared.

I am very excited about this project and have my fingers crossed for the Citi tower. It will bring such great density to the neighborhood and hopefully some retail and more restaurants and activity.

I'll post pictures when there is something interesting to see. Right now, it is just a bunch of cut up trees.

I think they're probably waiting to take down the trees near the sidewalk because of the overhead power lines near them.  Hopefully, the two large oaks in the right-of-way on Church will stay and can be trimmed though.

I like 420 Church.  I just wish it was on one of those vacant tree-less blocks ala former Eola Place; those oaks are old.

They are old and about dead....

^Didn't realize it was gonna be like Ripley Believe It or Not on I-Drive, lol. This block is huge, and having a 9-story wall fronting the whole block is better than a high-rise IMO.

I really like that this project will add further mid-rise density to the South Eola area.  I've always liked the skyline view when it includes South Eola; there's a unique urban quality to it.

I'm a little sick of the "artisan" buzzword, but at least it ties into the art galleries.

The last two oak trees (the ones in the Church r/w) are coming down today.  Foundation work in SWC of the lot is really moving along too.

At 9 stories tall..please tell me it is too tall to be a wood frame building....

 

I know right! Think of all the bowing, warping, creaking, and mold taking place in Central Station popsicle stick fortress right now...
