About 2-and-a-half floors of the soon-to-be-5-story Broadstone Studemont apartment building are now standing on a 4-acre parcel between Hicks and Summer streets. The shot above takes a look at the complex from an extension of Summer St. laid down west of Studemont — and Kroger — prior to the apartments’ groundbreaking in February.
The road segment cuts between the north side of the apartments and the planned Studemont Junction retail center opposite them, highlighted in the site plan below:
Further west, Summer St. continues past Olivewood Cemetary to the north before dying in a cul-de-sac at what used to be Wichman St. (That longitudinal local street once ran north off Hicks but has now completely disappeared.)
Back when development plans for the 15-acre Studemont-side plot indicated by the 3 red sections above were first announced in 2014, the entire area — formerly home to a Grocers Supply Warehouse — was planned as a mixed-use complex under the Studemont Junction name. Now, that moniker appears to apply only to the retail portion on the north side of Summer St., which — when built — could layout something like this:
