Urban Village

between Aldrich and Dupont Avenue South and between 28th Street to the 29th Street Greenway

This community located adjacent to the 29th Street Greenway between Aldrich and Dupont will be an eclectic, friendly ensemble of architectural forms and will include a 192-unit development of duplexes, town homes, lofts and condominiums. The block between Bryant and Aldrich avenues will also include eight units of low-income rental housing.

Close proximity to bikeways and transit will allow most daily needs to be met on foot, bicycle or by public transit. All three blocks will share public/private space along the Greenway, including a public meeting area at the bridge on Bryant Avenue at 29th Street.
