If this is true, it will be wonderful infill for that desolate stretch of parking lots.

Let's leave the blow-up ladies out of it. We're a G-rated site afterall.
My son got a 27 on his ACT. No this score is not as high as what Jeff's son achieved. But one has to remember the paternal gene-pool my son has to overcome. On a PGPAB [Paternal Gene-Pool Adjusted Basis], my son's score is a 37 and Jeff's son's PGPAB ACT score is 19.

As for the actual building, kind of strange to put the courtyard on the street frontage. Other than that this will be another big step to get contiguous development from UNMC all the way to 10th. There will be quite a bit of new blood in the area from 19th to 24th.

This is exactly the type of development I was hoping for in the Joslyn District thread. Excellent! I would like some street-level retail bays though.

It looks really nice for the most part. I think it's weird that there aren't any doors on Douglas Street.

I wonder if those garages have more capacity for parking than The Highline demands. This project could be built with little/to no new dedicated parking

Looks like it has a pool and therefore you would want it facing south.

Not trying to be a downer, but either that's a small pool, or they have really large patio furniture...

Hardly big enough for two or three blow-up bikini models mentioned earlier...

Nearly $17 million for 114 apartments and 2K SF of commercial space. No parking needed in this project as the original Highline has a ton of excess parking.

Another floor on half of the building with rooftop space would be nice? Not complaining thought, its 100 times better than what is there now.

Quesiton: Is the parking garage part of the Highline? Is it on the national register? It would have been nice if they took that out, built a new 2 or 3 story garage, then added say 4 floors of apartments above.

Couldn't imagine why they'd waste time on making a parking garage historic unless the parking garage witnessed something historic.

Yup, everybody knows excavators can be there in 15 minutes when you're ready to dig. ;-)

So the concrete removal is done and different hardware is on site for foundation excavation which has started. Guess no surcharge needed.
