And here are the apartments designed to replace those mini storage sheds being torn down on the north side of Memorial Dr. at 159 Birdsall St. The demo, says a rep from developer Sunrise Luxury Living, is about 75 percent complete — only 20 sheds remain — and construction on the 5-story Birdsall Memorial Apartments is expected to begin in the next four months. Plans show the new complex squeezing 180 1- and 2-bedroom units onto the property where the 300 storage sheds stood.
Here’s a nifty aerial view of the area:
On the north side of Memorial, the apartments will be tucked in behind a Valero corner store and a Spec’s, across the street from where La Mia used to be. Half a mile west is the entrance to Memorial Park.
Below: The ground floor, with gated garage entries and, there in the southeast corner, an on-site cell tower:
Below: One level of parking will be underground. In all, 278 spaces will be available.
Floors 2-5, repeating themselves as you might expect, going up:
