I've often passed by the old Mercy medical offices next to the Standard on the 500 block of St. Paul Street and thought to myself, "someone should really knock that down and put up apartments". Well it looks like I pretty much nailed it on that one. A few weeks back PMC Property Group put forth a plan to renovate the current building, add two more stories, and put in 78 apartments. PMC Property most recently completely the renovation of 1201 N. Charles Street to much fanfare.
A new apartment building in this area will be a big addition. With the Standard next door, the new Mercy tower, the newly renovated Home 2 Hotel, and the forthcoming transition of the Tremont to apartments, there is more life coming to St. Paul Place and Preston Gardens (not to mention the improvements that have lately been made there).
As more information comes about this project, we'll update you all.
