327 Eddy Street (Dryden Eddy Apts) Construction Update, 6/2016

19 06 2016

Steve Fontana’s mixed-use project at 327 Eddy Street has topped out since the April update. The exterior stud walls are up on the front facade, as is a little gypsum sheathing. The CMU Block rear portion is also topped out, although it appears that the design of the rear was also changed/value engineered such that it no longer have the larger band of windows on the top floor. The large window at top center is split between two units,  and using the wood stud walls as a guideline, one can kinda get the impression of soaring ceilings and a big, glassy open space. More interior wall faming can be seen from the rear of the building. Units range from studios to 5-bedroom apartments, with prices starting at $950/person and topping out at $1250/person for choice units.

While the apartments are able to command to premium price, Fontana has had issues finding a commercial tenant for the 1,800 SF first floor, and expressed his concerns at a city PEDC meeting where the active-use code for Collegetown was modified to match the slightly more flexible code used with the Commons.

Things should be moving right along for an August opening.
