A West End resident writes in with a question about plans for the former Trinity Steel plant off Koehler St. between Yale and Bonner:
They have recently begun demolishing the huge industrial warehouses that made up the Trinity Industries complex. Our Civic Club President seems to think they are building an extension of the The Core apartment complex that just went up at 3990 Washington Avenue (www.thecoreapts.com). That would be a disaster since the Trinity Industry property parcel is HUGE and if they are going to be ALL apartments, our narrow neighborhood streets will be clogged constantly with all that extra traffic.
I can’t find anything about who developed The Core to see if they have any updates on their website about future extension plans. Do you have any leads on what is going on and going up there?
The Core Apartments were developed by the Morgan Group. Any Swamplot readers have the scoop on future plans for the site?
Bonus question after the jump:
While you’re investigating the Core Apartments website, let us know what you think of the Morgan Group’s idea of including this photo among images of the apartments:
Hmmm . . . you can see what they’re getting at, but this sure isn’t a view of anything near Washington Ave. now, is it? Can any of you figure out where the photo was taken?
