As previously reported, L+M Development Partners are putting up a 12-story retail-residential building that will include 110 apartment units, 22 of which will be permanently affordable. Amenities will include a fitness center, landscaped roof deck and an outdoor terrace.
Gone are the one-level storefronts including Rite Aid, which relocated one block north to the ground floor of the Arabella 101 building. Rite Aid signed a lease to return to the retail space at No. 79.
The project is expected to be completed in 2018. It will look something like the rendering on the plywood...
