A new apartment building has been proposed for a site near the shores of Lake Superior.
Launch Properties is planning a six-story residential building for a site located at 2215 South Street. The site currently is home to four single-family homes and is situated directly behind Wendy’s and a commercial building located along London Road.
Plans show that the new building would include 98 market-rate apartments that would range in size and include micro, alcove, one bedroom, one-bedroom + den and two-bedroom units.
A number of different amenities would be included throughout the building. On the ground floor residents would have access to a large lobby and a business center, space for the leasing center and administrative offices along with the mailroom would also be included. The third floor of the building would be home to a large clubroom, a fitness room and a guest suite that would be available to book by residents. In addition, there would be a large amenity deck likely filled with outdoor seating, grilling areas and green space also located on that level.
The new building wouldn’t be the only luxury housing within the area as the site is located directly next to Endi Apartments, a six-story mixed-use building that features luxury apartments and retail space that was completed a few years ago.
Launch Properties is the developer proposing the new project. The company entered the market last year when they developed Miller Hill Crossroads, a new retail building at the corner of Anderson Road and W Central Entrance that is home to Aspen Dental, Starbucks and one vacant retail space. They are also developing a 21,700 square foot multi-building retail development across the street called “The Jigsaw”. Seven spaces are available within the project with one space already having been leased by Chuck & Don’s (you can read more about that project here).
Plans for 2215 South Street will be presented to the Duluth Planning Commission at their next meeting next Wednesday, July 9th at 5:00pm.
