1059 and 1106 Wealthy St Redevelopment Projects


Recommended Posts

Hey, I actually do like some stuff!  I'm not always a curmudgeon.   :fun: 

 

I was being a bit harsh. :) I actually agree with you on most architectural issues. I do think that you sometimes have unrealistic expectations, but I don't think it's unrealistic to expect better than this POS rendering. :thumbsup:

Word is that 1059 Wealthy is about to be redeveloped and some of you may wonder about the history of this property.  The site was originally the home of the Freyling and Mendels Greenhouse.  While i h

Progress: Looks like most of the steel is up on the main mixed use building

Hey, I actually do like some stuff!  I'm not always a curmudgeon.   :fun:  That newish Uptown Village building on Wealthy is quite nice, actually.  I'm not 100% in love with the somewhat wonky roofline, but in general, it's a good example of how to get an infill project right.  This one looks like the residential chunk was drawn by a guy who couldn't give a rip, with the commercial chunk drawn by a guy on acid.

 

I do agree with you on that one. Looks like the motel from Breaking Bad or something.

I was confused when I saw these. Why are the 'back' buildings well rendered in color, and the building that faces Wealthy looks like it a black and white photocopy? Weird.

Two different firms.  The front building is URS, and rear is Concept Design.  Not sure why URS did not use color?  

 

Now that you mention it Jeff, the URS design does look like an old motor inn.

1059 Wealthy has a new site plan posted on the the East Hills web site

http://easthillscouncil.org/news/1059-wealthy-street-se-0

There are a number of things on this that i find very impressive

1.  Removes the grade issue between the property and calkins, bring the town homes on calkins to street level

2. Calkins is widened giving room for parallel parking and a SIDEWALK!

3. Parking is distributed throughout the site, instead of one huge lot in the center.

4.  Fair amount of green space/trees in the plan

1059 wealthy AKA the FreylingMendels building has a website up.  Included are the floor plans for all the apartments.  What i find most interesting are the photos included in the history section including the one below. Can you imaging those windows on the left facing wealthy st!  I know a married couple who each grew up within a few block of this during the 40s and 50s.  She said she has fond memories of visiting the greenhouse independently as a child to look at the goldfish pond and fountain.  He remembers the place as "humid."
