A reader sends photos of the new Memorial Hills Apartments under construction just north of Memorial Drive and west of Jackson Hill at 3200 Scotland St., on the site of the old . . . Memorial Hills Apartments! The new apartments are being developed by Gables Residential, and were designed by Ziegler Cooper Architects.
The apartments will be 8 stories tall and face Cleveland Park directly to the south. The parking garage will be on the north side of the site.
Below: more reader photos of the construction site, plus pretty words and pictures from Ziegler Cooper!
The gushing description of the project from the Ziegler Cooper website may have lost something in translation:
The project timelessly emerges eight stories encapsulating a luxurious pool, a state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen and a lush garden gathering area. With desirable views into the garden and pool area and breathtaking views of the downtown skyline, the dwellings inevitably feel spacious and contextually united. To the north of the site, there is a parking structure connected to the main structure that allows residents to park on the level that comes with downtown living.
. . . Together the curving earth tone masonry walls and the clean white glazed terracotta tower create an interesting textural contrast resulting in a pivotal tower element anchoring the composition. Atop the tower ascends a cove which creates an exclamation point that will be all the more dramatic when brightly illuminated at night.
