Core Redevelopment, the new owner and developer of the former Woodward/SCPA property, will present its initial plans for the landmark piece of real estate at a public meeting Wednesday, January 9 at 6:30pm at the Main Public Library on the 3rd floor in the Tower Room.
According to Pendleton Neighborhood Council President David White, the proposed redevelopment will include 160 apartments. This figure is in line with what reliable sources relayed to this blog in December.
It is not in the character of the OTR Blog to share non-public information without the consent of its ultimate source – so, consider this a disclaimer: The following is reliable information as of mid-December:
- 160-170 units with the usual high quality accoutrements (ie granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, etc.)
- Entry level 1 bedroom apartments starting at $775
- Two plans for Cutter Field
- Use some of the park for parking (parking is a necessity)
- Perhaps a 60/40 ratio of parking to greenspace
- Improve the park, add a dog park, preserve and enhance the softball field
- Potential of selling the park to the city in the future
- The auditorium, gym and 5th floor swimming pools present unique challenges to the potential redevelopment
