The rest of Flywheel's project, the Greenway District, will commence once discussions with the city about public infrastructure projects, like extending Philemon Avenue, are finished, Kuhn said. The first phase will include multifamily development, two apartment projects by different developers who will each build about 300 "urban garden-style" units, he continued.
Kuhn declined to name those developers but said they are currently going through permitting with the city. Once some residential has been developed, other uses will be built in the Greenway District. The ground floors of the apartment buildings to come up first will have the ability to eventually be converted into live-work units or commercial space, Kuhn said.
"We'll have space carved out for ground-floor retail in the future as the neighborhood develops," he said.
Flywheel Group has now rezoned all of its holdings in NoDa to allow transit-oriented development, Kuhn said. The firm has gone through multiple rezonings over the past couple of years to allow TOD mixed-use development on the land, which has largely contained industrial development.
