New Construction on the 1800 Block of South Street

These places are flying up on the 1800 block of South. The two single family houses facing Kater are already framed up, and the foundations for two multi-family buildings fronting on South Street were going in today. Given that one owner had all four lots being developed, it's too bad that something more adventurous didn't end up here, like a large floor-through commercial space with condos above, or a condo building like the one currently going up on the 1200 block of Bainbridge, which puts something like twelve units on a similarly-sized block.

The four buildings that we'll be getting are the conservative play here, and I'm sure the developer will do fine. While I might have done something a little less conventional, it's still good to see another four vacant lots disappear from the neighborhood.
