MFT Interests appears interested in tenants for its Heights Central Station project, slated for the site of the increasingly well-loved former post office on 11th St. between Yale St. and Heights Blvd. The development’s leasing website now includes the first rendering of what those mixed-use lowrises might look like (see above), as well as a site plan.
Although the logo for the center implies a possible train station theme to go along with the name, the site plan shows that most of the property will be devoted to automobile parking — an 86-car street-facing parking lot separates the storefronts from 11th and Yale streets, though the Heights Blvd. side of the eastern building is much closer to the street:
The plan also shows a coffee shop drive-thru lane on the south side of the eastern building. That building is labeled as having 18,750 sq.ft. of space, a partial 3rd floor, and an 812-sq.-ft. roof deck (right where those 3 figures are waving their arms in the air in the rendering of the structure):
The drawings depict the western building as only 1 story tall, with around 3,250 sq.ft. of space. A patio area is also shown between the 2 structures:
