Recommended Posts

"Many ideas are being considered, including selling a portion of the building for affordable housing for seniors and expanding the organization's PACE program, which currently operates at Fulton Manor."

Or can they sell the full property and open it for redevelopment?

Could Aquinas buy the property for expansion?

Would retail area do well here?

Better for mixed use or just apartments?

Row houses/student housing?

This is exciting!

I dont want to see Aquinas exclusively get this because their development style is a bit too E. Beltline-ish for this important corner, They love setbacks too much, and they dont build "tight" enough mainly due to the woodland setting of the college. If they get this, I just see more parking lots,  and buildings with setbacks from the street.

I want to see a project that will complement the other side of Carlton that will form a solid eastern gateway to the E. Fulton district, as well as a nice bookend on the street with Eastown to the south, on the other end of Carlton. I especially hate the elevation differential that exists with the current HH site and Carlton, and would hope that any building will eliminate the grass and wall that exists there now.

Hopefully one day Family Fare will rebuild their store  at the street, and really complete the intersection.

 

A series of really nice apartments + mixed use will be a win for the college and the local businesses.

      Anybody hear about what is going on in Eastown at 1444 Lake Dr. ? This is what I found on the ECA's website:
       
      "Stenson and Morton are currently collaborating on another exciting project. Morton owns the brick building at 1444 Lake Drive where he plans to open a restaurant at the front and a music museum at the back. This building is also being extensively renovated according to green-building practices using eco-friendly materials. Plans include removing the old concrete floor and replacing it with solar-powered radiant heating tubes in a brand-new concrete floor, and a rooftop garden and solar lighting tubes."
