HBJ reporter Paul Takahashi has details on the gated compound of 18 homes Pelican Builders is planning to fit onto the about-an-acre site of the recently vacated Mimosa Lane Apartments and Argonne Forest Apartments at the corner of Mimosa Dr. and Argonne St., behind the Huntingdon condo tower in Avalon Place. And — surprise! — they’ll be very similar to the townhouse-style structures in Pelican’s Bancroft Place compound 2-1/2 miles to the west, which was designed by the same architect, the Hopkins Company.
That means every home in Mimosa Place will be 3 or 4 stories tall, measure around 4,000 sq. ft., come with elevators and 11-ft. ceilings, and have a price tag above or close to $1.7 million. Demolition of the 2 complexes is scheduled to begin next week; Pelican is aiming to get the first 6 houses up by the beginning of next year.
