An infill development underway in the Fan is set to add some modern to the 19th-century neighborhood’s housing stock.
Site work started last week on The 2200 at Cary, a cluster of 19 modern-design townhomes that will rise on a half-acre corner lot at Cary Street and Shields Avenue.
Two homes along Cary that were in poor condition were demolished to make way for the $5 million development, which will consist of two rows of three-story townhomes ranging from 1,700 to 2,200 square feet each. The three-bedroom, 2½-bathroom units will be priced in the high $400,000s to the mid-$500,000s.
Scott’s Addition-based contractor Daniel & Co. is constructing the homes, which were designed by local architecture firm Johannas Design Group. One South Realty Group’s Andrea Levine and Michelle Rosman are marketing the homes.
All units will have balconies, and the units lining Cary will have third-level rooftop decks overlooking an interior courtyard. The units behind those will have garages accessible by an alley, and those units also will have options for elevators. Units without garages will have off-street parking spaces. Eleven additional spaces will fill a rear parking lot.
Construction is scheduled for completion next summer.
The project required a special-use permit from the city to waive the lot size and public street frontage required for single-family homes in the existing zoning, R-63 Multifamily Urban Residential District. Daniel & Co. filed plans for the project in the spring, having amassed the properties involved over a span of seven years.
The townhomes will add to other new construction that has popped up along that stretch of Cary in recent years. A block east at Cary and Rowland streets, Cory Weiner’s CW Performance Group is putting the finishing touches on a new two- and three-story mixed-use building. Across Rowland from that building, another newer development houses sandwich shop Olio.
