The new 143 unit apartment project planned for a site on London Road and 21st Avenue East moved forward this week as the Duluth City Council voted to approve a $2.8 million subsidy for the project.
The $36 million project is planned for a site that formerly housed a Burger King restaurant which originally was planned to be rebuilt with another retailer locating on site also. Harbor Bay Real Estate Advisors are the ones behind the project, the group is composed of of two former OPUS employees (we reported on the project a while back, you can read that post here) who have extensive background in developing similar projects.
Dubbed "Harbor Bay Flats" work is projected to begin in June with a completion about a year away in 2016. The building will be five stories tall from the I-35 side of the project but will appear to be only two stories tall from the London Road side. That building will feature 13,000 square feet of retail space, spacewe still wouldn't be surprised if we saw a Caribou Coffee / Bruegger's location sprout up. We'll continue to cross our fingers.
