So these would be rental residences? IF this happens to get built, I'd really consider moving from my place Downtown. I just hope they don't price it at a ridiculously crazy price point. i.e. The Strand.

I don't think this is meant to be a "cheap" building....I'd bet that these will rent for $1-$1.50 per square foot....which means that a 1 bdr might rent for as little as $750 and a 2bdr for as much as $1200...I'm sure the view will play a role in that.

what's a crazy price point for you?

A crazy price point for me is like $1,300 for a studio. I pay a little more that for a 1 bdr downtown right now and paid about the same on a mortgage on a new house before I moved Downtown.

I haven't been on in a few days and I see this AND the "Flager Line" (great name) on the front page... The best news so far this year! I'm super excited for both projects. I hope more projects start to come back to life.

I'm sure glad that THIS:

Then turned into THIS:


Then turned into THIS, much better use of the property density given the water feature asset, and most should get river views instead of being a parking lot:


The first rendering was the old Brooklyn Park proposal next door. That site will probably become a mixed use office development .

What is the parcel across Magnolia Street?  It looks to be part of the design.

Not for sure but it looks like retail bays.

What's the deal with the address change? The project was originally 200 Riverside, now 220 Riverside but in the same location.

Looking at the site plan it appears that this project doesn't include the entire site.  The 200 block appears to be the portion that will remain undeveloped initially.

I saw that. I'm cautiously optimistic about this.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Very cautiously optimistic, here. This is a golden opportunity. Let's not mess this one up. Key: making the ground level stores high volume.

And stay tuned for some other major Riverside Ave/Brooklyn news $$$... :-X

you mean like big-city developers (from Miami for example) looking at the old Brooklyn Park site?

It's too bad they aren't building condos at this site. A friend of mine just moved here and she's been looking for a condo in the Riverside/Avondale area and there are surprisingly few choices if you want any kind of view, affordability or construction after 1990. Hopefully the next phase will include a tower of condos.
