Three Homes Planned Across From Bottom Dollar

Yesterday, we told you about plans for sixty-four rental apartments at 31st & Thompson, behind Brewerytown's still-relatively-new Bottom Dollar Food. Today, we direct your attention just a little to the south, to 1213 N. 31st St., where a little more development is on tap. Instead of being behind the market, this project will (if approved) rise across the street. Can't argue with those supermarket views.

Zoning notice

Easy access

A couple years back, Steph-Sin Development built a couple of houses on this street, a little further north. Now, like a (very) mini Westrum, they're following their previous project with another one down the block. The proposal, which still needs to go to zoning, is to divide a large vacant lot into three smaller vacant lots and build three homes. And while a home right across the street from a Bottom Dollar may not sound like the most appealing choice in the world, at least you're covered if you need milk for your cereal in the morning. The previous Steph-Sin homes on this block are currently rental properties, and we imagine that will be the fate of the future homes as well.

The activity of developers like Steph-Sin and MM Partners in this neighborhood, along with the efforts of Westrum, show that developers of all shapes and sizes are working together to make Brewerytown a better place. And while the neighborhood still has a ways to go both in terms of residential and commercial redevelopment, the progress in the last few years is staggering. And it's poised to continue in the years to come.
