Here's a first look at at a pair of proposals from two different developers that will increase the density of a popular neighborhood on the north end of Lake Calhoun.
Greystar, a North Carolina-based company plans to build a eight-story luxury apartment building next to the Calhoun Beach Club. The 90-unit building will feature large, three-bedroom apartments aimed at attracting families. And Texas-based Trammel Crow is planning a six-story building with about 150 apartments where Tryg's restaurant now stands at 3118 W. Lake Street. That building was originally going to be 11-stories tall.
Both projects are still working their way through the approval process and are smaller than originally proposed in part because of of feedback from the Cedar-Isles-Dean Neighborhood Association, which will review the latest rendition of the the projects at 6 p.m. on April 7 at the Jones Harrison Residence.
Stay tuned for more details.
