Iconic Apples, Real Apples, and Marmots
A few different hot items to report on.
Apple Stakes Out Its Claim Downtown
I drove by the home of where the Apple facility is going downtown, and there is already staking and marking going on for Phase 1.
Urban Farm Begins Survey Work
I have heard through the rumor mill that the proposed urban farm on the corner of Center and Moran, in the giant vacant lot, has been approved, and breaks ground in one to two weeks. I walked by today and saw survey work going on (see below).
Marmot Companies 8-Plex Nears Completion
What was the most hideous property within a half mile of me is now ready for new renters after being totally renovated and worked on for weeks. The property was in bad shape, and now feature brand new kitchens, redone interiors, repaired and painted exterior, and future landscaping in the front of the property. Considering the remaining block and a half they own surrounding the property has already been improved and all the bad apples have been removed, this is actually a pretty desirable location for those that want to walk to Midtown AND downtown and the Wells Avenue commercial corridor.

YAY! Midtown is looking MUCH better. That was a rather rough 8-plex, both in looks and tenants...and Im getting rather excited about the urban farm....

I poked my nose into the windows of a couple of the 8-plex units - WAY COOL! Can't wait to see the new landscaping. Rumor has it that the Marmots are planning a shared picnic area with a shade structure.
Who was their designer?

Mike McGonagle of Mac Associates provided design assistance on the units, exterior and landscape. We're confident it'll be a popular place and is certainly a heck of a lot nicer than what was there. The urban farm in the backyard is a plus!

Marmot, when do you think it will be ready for tenant move-in? And how much is the expected rent?
Posted by: Sticky - 10/21/2012 2:25:01 PM
Accepting applications now! Move in should be by November 15, with units starting at $595 up to $650. We're figuring that the upstairs and end units will be more desirable, but vamos a ver, right? Oh, and they back up onto the urban farm!

No construction has happened on the Apple site downtown, anyone know what the big mystery is?
