Street level retail faces Rhett Street. :thumbsup:

If I'm not mistaken, this is one block diagonally behind the Custom House, right?

^^ Yes.

This is were I suspected this was going. Looks solid to me.

The 'retail' apears to be the leasing office, but that fine by me. As long as it is not all garage

I think so... It will be bounded by Wardlaw, Rhett and Furgerson Streets on three sides.

Haha, I didn't pay any attention to what it said, I just saw "leasing..". Good catch, and I agree, at least it's not all garage, and using it as office space will still be more interactive than apartments or parking.

I like this. Design appears to be simple but classy. I love the fact that these apartments will front all four sides of the block it sits on. Really nice project for this location in The West End.

I like seeing these developments spread around a several block area. It gives downtown a bigger visual footprint.

Absolutely! It's great to see things filling in, especially large footprints like this. The visual impact on Academy Street should be huge, if the Brownstones are any indication...

I hope this means we'll see streetscaping all the way from Camperdown to the railroad tracks.

The vibrant West End village district continues to expand. I would love to see some form of a major cycling center built in the South Main/River/Camperdown/Rhett/Academy area. I enjoy the growing density surrounding the river and believe cycling fits that location like a glove.

It looks great, and the density means that in the next five years Downtown could finally house stores that are only on Woodruff Road right now. Soon you won't have to leave downtown to run errands. A side note though, they put a saucer cap on one end of the building . . . sheesh :dontknow:

Good. I was wondering what was happening here. There didn't seem to be much movement lately.

This project now has bank financing and will get built-

Atlanta-based Kaufman Realty Group, LLC (“KRG”) continues its expansion into multifamily, new construction investments through a joint venture with Charlotte-based Lat Purser & Associates, Inc. (“LPA”) and Ray Jones, an apartment development veteran also based in Charlotte. The team will develop a 150-unit, midrise, luxury apartment community, to be named The Rhett Street Apartments.

The project, which will begin construction in February, is being financed with capital provided by Bank of America, and equity from KRG, LPA, Jones and Columbia, SC-based Intermark Management Corporation, which will manage the property. The apartments will include 1-, and 2-bedroom floor plans within one 5-story building with garage parking. The common areas will include a well-appointed clubhouse/leasing center, fitness center, coffee bar, media lounge, an outdoor pool, and heavily landscaped courtyards.

Odd they wouldn't find some slightly updated pictures. In one the Kroc center is hardly started and another the Courtyard Marriott is just starting.
