Hmm. What they're building looks nothing like that, and some of those pics don't even look like each other.

Five floors of wood framed apartments. You'll probably be able to hear your neighbor fart.

Pardon the rookie question but does using wood as opposed to concrete just come down to cost?

That was meant as a joke...10 years from now these will be converted to condos like all the other apartments did back in the early 2000's

And at the real estate hayday there were suburban apartment complexes made out of wood that were converted. They lost about 70% of their value when the market crashed.

Between the Barrymore and the interstate ramp, this complex is well hidden.

Related Riverwalk's highest portion is also the garage.

So it's a parking garage with some low-rise throwaway apartments on the side. I drive past it almost every day. Not impressed so far, and seems really out of place. As the renderings suggest, it would be better suited to the burbs...Hence why they show no buildings or even their own parking garage. I'll be surprised if it looks half as nice as the renderings show once completed.

This is an unusual spot, I was by there today and without a doubt it could have been another Nine 15 type project or even a Pearl at 8 to 10 stories.

There really isn't much to gain however in pointing out the obvious. I do welcome the new residential in place of what has been a blight for so many decades, projects like this, Pierhouse and Aurora can be easily replaced...consider them a stepping stone rather than a stumbling block in terms of development.

Downtown needs to grow and ride this current wave before it crashes...once there is enough happening, downtown won't be a reliant on the 'market' and will be more reflective of downtown St Pete and Clearwater Beach...

It will all come together and seeing 5 story structures as the negative over empty parking seems to be a better alternative....not to mention all new roadwork, sidewalks, paths and bike lanes that these new residents bring...

I am mixed between Mark and Brian.

It is a 5 story stick apt around a garage. But it does get over 500 people DT on low estimate.

9-15 is a giant wall. Same at the Channel apts going up now.

To be fair, that lot wasn't going to be very walkable anyways except for the southwest corner (unless it was divided into separate lots like armature works). It's bounded by a highway and an on ramp. Right now, our biggest problem is the population in downtown, and as long as we see that number increasing, transit improvements will come easier and faster (hopefully).

I think you hit the nail on the head. Right now construction costs are ridiculous and buildings are having huge delays. Getting this built is cheaper and fits the site pretty well. Any denser and you are talking two phases. There is no office nearby to support retail and let's face it, there aren't enough people living downtown to support retail on every project, let alone one the fringe.
