It looks like the grassy lots at the corner of Person and Peace Streets may finally get some construction. After breaking ground on Blount Street Commons in 2008 and stalling not long afterwards, these lots have sat empty since. The new condos, called Peace Street Townes, will sit across from Krispy Kreme.
The site plan (seen above) for Peace Street Townes shows 18 homes, six of which are three bedrooms with rooftop porches and the other twelve are two bedroom homes. This will be great for this area and for all of the development that keeps happening in this Northeast corridor of downtown. Unfortunately, the only problem is that there seems to be no retail component as part of this development. Hopefully, the Person Street lots just South of this that were proposed to have retail will come through now that these townhomes are moving forward and according to the blog, hoping to start construction in October.
In similar Person Street news, we received word from the folks at Market Restaurant that renovations on their property will begin in the next few weeks. Also, we hear that Yellow Dog Bakery has signed a lease and will defiintely be moving into the development as well.
