There is some serious shit going down around Campustown, and it involves more high-rise apartment complexes going up at the cost of businesses.
This is the rendering of a 16-story skyrise apartment complex set to go up on the corner of 4th and Green Street on campus. The beloved 5 a.m. drunk-food-for-college-student-stop IHOP gets the demolition treatment, as well as Campus Liquors, a place that has changed fairly frequently over the past few years (used to be Colonial Pantry).
This is just one of many new apartment complexes that are set to be built in the near future on Green Street.
Here are some other recently announced building plans on Green Street:
— A five-story, 52-unit apartment building is going up at Second and Green streets — the former site of Garcia’s Pizza-in-a-Pan and the White Horse Inn.
— Bankier Apartments recently announced plans for a 14-story apartment building on the southwest corner of Sixth and Green streets — where Gameday Spirit, Hair Benders and Beri Frozen Yogurt & Roll Model now operate.
— Also on tap in Campustown is JSM Development’s hotel and apartment project on the site of Lot J situated near the northwest corner of Sixth and Green streets. That project would consist of two 12-story towers, including a 108-room Marriott TownePlace Suites hotel designed for long-term stays.
