For those of you that haven’t had the opportunity to drive through Governors’ Park lately, you may not have noticed that a new apartment project is underway. Within the past few months, Forum Real Estate Group has moved ahead with preparations for development on a vacant site at 6th Avenue and Logan Street. After fencing was raised around the site and signage was placed to market the new venture, the first signs of progress are visible. They appear to be preparing the grounds to begin construction of The Logan, a five-story boutique apartment building.


As Rory Seeber pointed out in a story covering the development in Life on Capitol Hill, the $9.9 million development will include 57 units and will include an underground parking structure to accommodate 51 parking spaces. Especially exciting about this project is not only that it will infill a vacant lot, but it is also one of the first developments the neighborhood has seen in two decades.
