A follow-up to last week's mention of Crosland's plan to replace Bristol Court and some restaurants on Erwin Road near Duke with a brand-new apartment complex/mixed-use development: Triangle Business Journal this week has an excellent story about the proposal, including the imagery from the developer shown at right.
According to the TBJ:
- The $75 million complex will have mostly studio and 1-bedroom apartments targeted towards "medical residents and staff" who "rotate through" the Duke Medical complex;
- Eventual condo conversion is possible;
- Construction is unlikely to begin for 18 months;
- Additional commercial was hoped for, but created too much traffic impact and neighbors "were more enthusiastic" of having residential.
The TBJ article also mentions other development planned for the area, including a hotel proposed for Erwin Terrace and a hotel/office/condo project on the remaining Pavilion at Lakeview site.
Incidentally, if you haven't done so, be sure to check out the comments on the earlier story on this project. Regular commentors KH and David raise some very interesting points about the changing demographics of the area and the impact of same.
