Many questions have been floating around about what is going on at Speer Boulevard and Washington Street. There has been a huge pit in the ground for quite some time with very limited information out there on the project itself. Hopefully today I can answer some of those questions. The Speer & Washington Apartments are going to provide the Speer neighborhood 107 rental units. Here is a map with the project site highlighted. At 255 Washington Street, this will sit on the south side of Speer Boulevard along Washington.
I haven’t been able to locate any renderings but I have been able to find some elevations giving you a general idea of what this project will look like. The structure will top out at five stories with two stories of underground parking.
The site itself is fairly large with a diagonal portion along Speer. With the parking structure almost completed, this should break street level fairly soon.
Density along Speer Boulevard has always been a neat sight which this project is contributing greatly to! Shaw Construction is the builder and this is expected to be complete by November of this year.
