Big Glass Box Descending on Point Breeze Avenue

Point Breeze Avenue has seen incremental improvement over the last few years, as new homes have sprouted in the surrounding neighborhood. OCF Coffee House opened a few years ago at the top of the commercial corridor, taking a space in a renovated building which had been blighted for many years. More recently, the Kind Institute opened its doors in a new construction building at the corner of Point Breeze & Titan. And let's not forget about On Point, a byob coming soon to 1200 Point Breeze Ave., or Design Movement, an antique store that took over a space on the 1200 block previously occupied by a hardware store. Now, good things are on the way for 1245 Point Breeze Ave., another prominent corner on the corridor.

Current view

OCF Holdings currently has the building under agreement, and the plans look fantastic, if we may offer our entirely non-biased opinion. The plans call for three floors of apartments over retail, with fifteen residential units in total. Toner Architects did the architecture, and Designblendz did the sweet looking renderings.
