With permits pulled to do some demo and grading work at 1401 South Virginia Street, Midtown Loft plans finalized and ready for construction within a few weeks, and "Uptown Square" on the horizon, S3 Development is set to make a significant impact on Midtown.

1401 Midtown

1401 Midtown, formerly named the Cov, is located at 1401 South Virginia Street, the edge of Midtown, and used to be home to Heritage Bank before they moved. The plan, designed by architect Mike McGonagle, is mixed use, with retail, and residential, and the new on-site 'Tonopah Lofts' highlighted here. It's the largest mixed used project in Midtown. Once completed, 1401 Midtown will contain 8,000 sq. ft. of professional office space, 4,600 sq. ft. of retail and 5,200 sq. ft. of multiple restaurants and bars and will include three apartment rooftop lofts within the existing brick structure. When including the lofts, the 35,000 sq. ft. development is slated for completion in Spring 2016. Permits have been pulled to do some demo and grading work.

Midtown Lofts

I featured the details of Midtown Lofts here. This is a significant infill project on the corner of Sinclair and Stewart Streets. Permits have been pulled, things are ready to go, and you should see action within a few weeks.

This project will be a stunning anchor for the improvements Marmot Properties have made to the remainder of the block, of which they own most of the properties.

Uptown Square

I reported a while back that S3 Development purchased the corner property on 2nd and Lake that was to be the sales office for the failed Waterfront Project. Their web site, which launched yesterday, now has a bit of info on future plans for this site. Those plans include hand-crafted libations and an entertainment zone adjacent to the sidewalks, creating new life in a dead zone, that could be an attraction for both baseball folks and downtown residents. Stay tuned for more info on this.

It will be exciting to watch these three projects come to fruition, with the first two already in the permit process.
