Church Street Plaza | 32-Story Hotel/Apt & Re-work of Former CSS Retail/Event Space [Phases 2/3 Planning Phase]By HankStrong
Just a link to the MPB staff report.
I combined Ph 2 tower and Ph 3 former Church Street Station re-work as it seems they are both ramping up to start.
Renovation of the existing property includes 77,000 SF of office/coworking space and 12,000 SF of ground-floor retail, 3,700 of which is slated for restaurant fronting the corner of Orange Ave and Jefferson with outdoor seating area. Updated facade will feature modernized design and lighting including Corten Steel focal point for main entrance and signage on the corner. The project is being developed by Third & Urban with local assist from Foundry and architect for the new construction/reno is Smith Dalia Architects. Demo will begin September 2019 with reno expected to begin November 2019.
Bunglaower reports a 13-story multi-family residential tower is being proposed for 108 E. Livingston Street called Magnolia Rose.
The proposed 320 unit development would also include space for six parcels of ground-level retail. The plan, submitted on 4/20, calls for the City to abandon a section of North Rosalind Avenue, which translates to approximately 77,982 SF of right-of-way, to host an adjoined five-story, 395-space parking garage.
I wanted to post a thread on this to see if anyone else was interested, curious, or knowledgeable about prefab homes. My girlfriend and I are considering either a major addition to our home or demoing the structure and building a custom home. I understood prefab to be better built due to the ability to build in a controlled environment, but also cheaper due to the economies of scale achieved by building similar homes in one location. This would be especially true for the modular homes. However, I am finding many of the prefab homes are priced in the $350-$500/sqft. range, excluding land costs! One company (Turkel Design) gave me a quote for $143 for site work costs, which would include running the plumbing, electrical, installing the cabinetry, etc. The materials (drywall, cabinets, counters, appliances, etc.) come as part of another $150,000 line item for the budget. The big issue I am having is comparing apples-to-apples. How do I confirm what a comparable house would cost to build on site?
Does anyone have an personal experience with these types of homes or projects?
