A $10M collection of townhouses called Nailah Commons is headed for several empty lots in Art Center, reports Crain's. Nailah envisions building 58 new apartments — a total of eight separate buildings — on land fronting the I-75 service drive between Kirby and Ferry Streets.
Breakdown: 46 one-bedroom apartments; 12 two-bedrooms
Size: Between 708 to 941 square feet
Architecture: 8 buildings; all with 3 stories
Type: 20% of units will be affordable housing
ETA: End of 2015
History: A condo-based version of Nailah Commons was originally floated in 2007 and 2008. It was killed by the Great Recession, then reanimated as today's higher density apartment plan. The site plan shown below comes from Nailah's website which still advertises the defunct condo development. Although it has one fewer buildings than Nailah's latest incarnation, we're guessing it'll end up looking similar.
