Highland Park phase 2 construction to start within 60 days

The second phase of the Highland Park building, which I wrote about before, will be underway in 60 days according to the developer. The project has changed a bit when Donatelli, the developers of the original Highland Park, took over. It's replacing the La Casa homeless shelter, which will be built behind the new building.

The new building, with about 70 143 apartments per the newest plans, will match Highland Park's look and will be physically connected.

Wow, thanks! I missed the earlier stories, but had been wondering what was going on here. Looks like a win-win for our community!

Any update on that sportsbar that is supposed to be going in by Gastro Pub? Still on track to open in the spring?
Also, hear anything about the old Ella Thompson space?

thanks

The sports bar looks to be nearing completion. The finishes look really nice too! I would expect from the looks of it that it would be open within the next 4-6 weeks.

Hope the entrance stays on Irving. The alley behind became a parade of the homeless (not in a good way).

Instead of the 70 residential units, it's now going to be closer to 140. The developer had originally proposed 69 units of housing but upped the number to 143 in the fall of 2010 when he returned to the Zoning Commission.
