The Welton corridor from Downtown to Five Points has seen an immense amount of growth which has greatly helped connect the neighborhoods. With The Wheatley, and The Lydian both finishing in recent times, there are a couple more projects of similar scale that are proposed and under construction along Welton Street in Five Points.
The Hooper. Construction commenced last summer on the nine-story mixed-use building. Present day, the concrete structure is up three floors. This project will include over 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, approximately 31,000 square feet of office space, and 101 apartment homes of which 80% will be micro units.
The Rossonian. While this isn’t a brand new announcement, a lot has changed since our original post in 2015. The Rossonian redevelopment will incorporate the historic hotel while adding a jazz club and music venue, ground-floor restaurant, and a fourth-floor addition. As seen below, The Hooper shares the same block as the Rossonian redevelopment. Palisade Partners, the developer, partnered up with famous basketball star Chauncey Billups for the restaurant and lounge portions of the project. The architect on record is Craine Architecture who has done great work in the past for Five Points and continues to deliver with this development.
Five Points, especially along the Welton Corridor, continues to see high-quality development. These two projects continue the trend while adding a good amount of density to this area.
