Architect Meeks + Partners has posted a rendering of the steel-framed apartment complex Greystar is planning to replace the Memorial Club Apartments lining the southern boundary of the Washington on Westcott roundabout. Swamplot reported Greystar’s plans for the apartments last year — along with a tip that the planned redevelopment would include a new Trader Joe’s. The rendering shows no sign of a Trader Joe’s, but it does show the base of the apartment structure filled with retail spaces and outdoor dining areas facing the roundabout. The view appears to be taken southeast from the roundabout; the existing stone Rice Military placard is in the foreground.
Greystar plans to construct the project, named Elan Memorial Park, in 2 phases. The first phase will consist of 292 apartments; phase 2 will have 258. The Memorial Club Apartments (pictured at left in a similar view from last year) sit on both sides of Westcott St., so it’s likely that the phases will be on opposite sides of that street from each other.
