Description: The proposed development is the demolition of the current JH Dowling Lumberyard site and the construction of a five (5) story, 115-unit (414 Bed) student apartment development with a multi-level parking garage. The entire build-out will be approximately 330,000 SF. As the name suggests, its theme will incorporate elements of the original J.H. Dowling Lumberyard that was located on the site. The property is zoned UV (University Urban Village District) and are located within the MMTD (Multi-Modal Transportation District), Downtown Overlay. North American Properties is responsible for over $154 Million of development in the Gaines/Madison Mile area with projects such as The Axis, The Block, The Court, The Deck all collectively known as Stadium Centre. NAP has also assembled property for two more student housing projects on Gaines Street.
I'm disappointed its design has nothing to do with its name but glad this isn't the FOURTH identical looking building in that area. I am however concerned what they're going to design for the booster apartments down by the stadium though. Hopefully not a rehash of a current design.
