A brand new multi-building mixed-use development is planned for the site of the former Heights Finance Station post office, which shut down at the end of last year after being declared “no longer necessary” by USPS. The land on 11th St. between Heights Blvd. and Yale St. will move on, change its name to a less-stodgy Heights Central Station, and start a new life as the site of multiple 2-story lowrises housing ground-floor retail and restaurants with office spaces on top.
That’s the plan described by MFT Interests, at least, which also plans outdoor space and bike parking for the complex along with vehicle parking “appropriate for the development.” A representative of the company also says that the company plans the area to be “appropriate in density given its location at the intersection of 3 major neighborhood thoroughfares.” The developers expect the shells of the buildings to be complete around the middle of 2017, though designs are still in the planning phase.
