Rise of the Avenir
The 5-story, $21 million building will have 104 apartment units, 7,000 square-feet of retail space, and a Jimmy Johns.
It’s been a long time coming, but construction is well underway at the east end of the Park East corridor. The final concrete deck for the Avenir apartment complex is in the process of being poured, a bit of a challenge on a windy day like today. The final product will be a five-story building with 104 units, 7,000 square-feet of retail space, and a total cost of approximately $20.7 million.
Great Clips, a hair salon, and Jimmy Johns, home of freaky fast sandwiches (and a drive-thru) have already agreed to lease space in the site.
We’ve covered the project extensively in the past, including when a number of janitors threatened to derail the project before it was approved, through the ground-breaking and other construction milestones. Occupancy is expected in the fall of 2014.
