Lots of partners on this - will be interesting to see what they're planning.

Quote

 The proposed Plaza Roosevelt Development would be a mix of education, healthcare, affordable housing, and other projects that eight community partners are to discuss as a "cutting-edge new agreement to begin site planning work," according to an advisory.

The proposed Plaza Roosevelt Development will be on two city blocks on the east side of Grandville Avenue between Graham Street on the north and Franklin Street on the south. Rumsey Street separates the two blocks of the project area.

Seems like former Site:Lab sites always end up getting redeveloped into great spaces.

This Habitat mixed use project was always a part of the Site:Lab Rumsey Street area. The additional partners are a welcome surprise but actually not really that surprising. 

I thought it was supposed to kick off last year so I was surprised that Site:Lab was there again at AP this year.

More details. Project will include a GRPS Spanish Immersion School, which already has 200 students on a waiting list apparently. I know the Forest Hills Spanish Immersion program/school is very popular. It will also include an expanded Metro Health facility, and residential/retail.

Mercy Health, not Metro.

This is terrific.  A real boost to neighborhood identity for Roosevelt Park.
