The AMLI Residential group in Austin builds a small C-store/bodega into everyone of their projects in and around downtown.  They carry a small amount of groceries and beer/wine.  I don't know why one of the downtown apartment buildings hasn't done this.  With the margin in multi-family (it is probably the best bet in CRE right now) currently I would have to think the carry cost of the complex owning and running a small store like this would work.  Obviously the beer/wine component won't work, but you could do at least low point beer.

Where exactly is this being built? I was driving around the area today and couldn't figure it out.

This isn't a bad idea to carry as an amenity to a property. Between rooftop pools, dog parks, and other very expensive things people build into projects, a corner store with staple items would be a great thing to include.

Where exactly is this being built? I was driving around the area today and couldn't figure it out.

It's 2 blocks south of the Hogan Assessments building going up right now. There's kind of a crane thing sitting on the lot (at least there was last time I drove by). Urban 8 townhouses are going up on the corner of 3rd and Greenwood and the ARG project will be basically the rest of that block. They haven't poured any of the foundation or done much besides mix some of the dirt up.

Thanks. The framing is going up now on Urban 8. I was surprised at how significant the project looked. It will make a huge difference along 3rd. I can't wait to see this area when all the current projects are completed and occupied.

That's really good news.

Now lets hope the slowing economy doesn't slow the second AR project at Archer and Elgin.

Massive new Hartford Commons apartment complex begins construction in Tulsa's East Village

Quote
So far, the majority of new living options in downtown Tulsa have come through the renovation of older buildings.
That’s not the case with Hartford Commons. When finished approximately 14 months from now, the new building being constructed at 215 S. Greenwood Ave. will add a whopping 162 apartment units to the East Village portion of downtown.
The $26 million project is a partnership between restaurateur Elliot Nelson and investor Casey Stowe, who are redeveloping several other downtown buildings as Nelson Stowe, as well as local apartment developer American Residential Group.
Earth moving for Hartford Commons began last month.
Though the development is ambitious one, Stowe said there’s still far too few downtown living options to meet demand.
“There have been a lot of units that have come online downtown in the last 24 months, though to my knowledge, almost all one-bedroom apartments that’s come online has been leased almost immediately,” he said. “In many cases, there’s a waiting list.”
Hartford Commons will feature 129 one-bedroom units ranging from 584 to 777 square feet and 33 two-bedroom units ranging from 951 square feet to 1196 square feet, and will rent for $900 to $1,500 per month, said Steve Ganzkow, senior vice president at American Residential Group.
In 2011 American Residential Group built The Metro At Brady Arts District, a 12-million, 75-unit mixed-use development that was at that point the biggest downtown multifamily development built with new construction.
The building will be similar to The Metro, though with more of a mix of brick and stucco, Ganzkow said.
“We tried to add a little more of a contemporary element to it instead of being completely traditional, like we did with Metro,” he said.
The development will also include a business center, exercise facility, swimming pool, awnings with misting sprayers, an outdoor kitchen and a fire pit, all designed to encourage people to congregate and spend time together, Ganzkow said.
Hartford Commons is the first new development American Residential has been involved with since the company sold all of its properties outside of the downtown area late last year for a combined $95 million.
At the time of the sale, American Residential CEO Jay Helm said the sale was a combination of freeing up capital for future projects and a refocus on urban cores, not just in Tulsa but potentially elsewhere.
Ganzkow said he believes the East Village will soon become the new hot spot for downtown development.
“As development fills out in Brady and Blue Dome and people run out of land, we feel development will move east,” he said.
American Residential also owns and operates Lincoln Park at 18th Street and Carson Avenue, Renaissance Downtown at 11th Street and Denver Avenue and the Tribune Lofts at 20 E. Archer St.
Nelson Stowe has also been busy with other projects — just this month the team, along with David Sharp, the owner and redeveloper of many buildings in the Brady District, and Ross Group construction began a $3 million, 36-unit redevelopment of Coliseum Apartments at 635 S. Elgin Ave. That project is scheduled to be finished in August.
Additionally, Nelson Stowe planned the redevelopment of the Gates Hardware building at 216 N. Elgin Ave. across from ONEOK Field until it was purchased by KSQ Architects, which is now heading the $5.2 million redevelopment.

When that development is finished in September, KSQ will move into the upper floor, while Nelson and Marshall Brewing Co. will open up a brewpub on the ground floor.
Stowe said it wasn’t intentional for all of the developments to begin construction at nearly the same time.
“It just so happened they all hit roughly the same milestone at roughly the same time,” he said. “It was a stressful December, let’s just say that.”

Yay! More customers!  Now if only it were a little more pleasant to walk from that part of downtown to mine.

Total units within the IDL of greater than two bedrooms seems to still hover around 0

Also looks like we're still sticking with the $1.5psf rent, but at 100% occupancy, one can imagine why.
