Get a look at Towne Propertiesí $17M Evanston apartments



Towne Properties is working to complete 116 apartments in Evanston, with plans to welcome its first residents Oct. 1.

The project, known as DeSales Flats Phase II, is a $17.3 million project at the corner of Lincoln and Woodburn avenues. Chad Munitz, vice president of development for Mount Adams-based Towne Properties, said this latest phase of apartments are a model of what the developer can do.

Vote paves the way to preserve former King Records complex

The city of Cincinnati will soon own the former King Records complex in Evanston, paving the way for the site where James Brown recorded to be preserved as a memorial, recording studio and performance space.

The City Council approved a land swap on Wednesday with the current owner, Dynamic Industries, on a 9-0 vote. Dynamic will acquire adjacent parcels owned by the Cincinnati Park Board, while the city will own the former King Records complex at 1532-1536 Brewster Ave.

Item 8 of the 6/4 Planning packet says there is a proposal to build 24 new single family homes in the 5 points area of Evanston. The site is currently a former school bus depot and vacant land. 11 attached, 10 detached, and 3 carriage houses. 3110-3116 Woodburn.

This is great news, and goes to show how important the Port Authority's renovation of close to 30 homes in this neighborhood has been. Now we have comps and banks have confidence in the neighborhood that previously did not exist. Great stuff!

These homes will be sold in the $300,000 - $400,000 range.

Forgive me if it's already been posted here (I'm sure it has) but what's the deal with the houses on St. Leger Place? I think these are a part of the Port Authority's redevelopment? But are they market rate housing or income-restricted?

I'm pretty sure they are NOT income-restricted. Here's some info on the program, including the homes that are for sale: https://www.cincinnatiport.org/what-we-offer/reach-home-rehab/

Thanks! I drove over there this weekend and saw these homes. It looks like it could really be the start of something great for the neighborhood.

^I like this, and it's nice that there will be townhouses facing Woodburn.

Yes, looks like an excellent site plan. Way better than the site plan for the citirama that was proposed for the West End before the FC Cincinnati stadium project.

It'd be neat if those 10 detached garages could be two-story buildings with mother-in-law apartments above, but that's probably just wishful thinking.

I'm really curious to see how these end up selling.  For a company like this who had great success with the sanctuary court nearby here (sold all 9 and still in active construction), they probably see this as somewhat risky but huge potential.  That immediate area is still a little tough and I know someone who was looking at a house almost directly east of there and they viewed it as too risky to put $ in it, as a family home for a few different reasons.  That may be the impetus for more $ in there with the new apartments just south of there too on Woodburn all finished now. 

Also, with all the work the port has done to get market rate homes sold just north of there is impressive.

They also have developers working more in E. Walnut Hills going down the hill but I haven't seen the homes sold yet. Places like this.

Looks like driving past they have done demolition of what was there before to build these homes, but the asking price may be too high yet...

The benefit in this case is that they're developing the parcel that blights the entire block.  There's nowhere to go but up when this is what you have: https://goo.gl/maps/F5Gsf2We1Bt  I do wish they didn't kink the new street (Merrimac).  They have an opportunity to create a little axis along the street to a monument or fountain or whatever at the end (they even show...something...on the site plan) but with the bend in the street that destroys the alignment in favor of a more suburban cul-de-sac design.  I am glad to see that some of the garages are detached at the rear yard rather than having a 40 foot parking pad and no back yard, but there's still a lot of pavement.

Yeah, it is definitely going to be a really nice development.

I just kind of am curious how they will sell at the price points they are wanting.  However, they are selling those Port homes for around 250k, with these 300-400k is pretty steep increase compared to very close comps.

That said, they sold the sanctuary homes it looks like for most of them above 600k.  Even though that is about half a mile away the neighborhood is a bit more stable across Madison Road there.

I hope they sell out quick!!!

The Hilton at Keystone Parke is pretty much finished. I was hoping it would be a little taller.
