Demolition permits have been approved for an L-shaped parcel at 210 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market, giving way to a new 19-story mixed-use building. LG Development Group has planned for 414 apartment units atop 10,500 square feet of retail. Currently, the site is occupied by a series of low-rise brick buildings. One of these structures, the historic Arthur Harris Building, will only be partially demolished then integrated into the new design.
As noted in a recent Urbanize article, 83 of the on-site units will be affordable. This figure will be split so that 41 residences will be designated for those making 60 percent of the area median income (AMI), the other 42 at 100 percent AMI.
NORR is the project architect, whose design has has two wings protruding from its unique footprint. The facade will include a combination of brick, dark metal paneling and beams, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The design also calls for a renovation of Arthur Harris Building’s front-facing facade along N Aberdeen Street.
There will be an integrated parking garage with 102 vehicle spaces. The immediate vicinity will also offer service for the L’s Green and Pink Lines, with Morgan station just a three-minute walk east. Closest bus service can be found for Route 20 within a seven-minute walk south, Route 65 via a seven-minute walk north, and Routes 9 and X9 via a 14-minute walk west.
Expected to cost $140 million, the new development is still awaiting clearance of full construction permits. Taylor Excavation & Construction will serve as the wrecking contractor, while Power Construction will be the general contractor. No completion date has yet been revealed.
