A blurb in in the Butcher’s Hill Community Newsletter suggests that the Gateway at Washington Hill Project might not be dead after all.? A “For Sale” sign posted at the site several months ago previously? suggested that the project wasn’t moving forward.
From the Butchers Hill Newsletter: “We’ll also have Dave Holmes stop by with an update on plans for the empty lots west of Washington St just below Hopkins. He recently signed an agreement with a new partner and hopes to begin work by next Spring.”
The project, bounded by Washington Street to the East, Wolfe Street to the West, Baltimore Street to the South, and Orleans Street to the North, is already zoned for 1.92 million square feet of mixed use.? ?
Originally, Dave Holmes had partnered with Ruppert O’Brien homes to build the townhouse portion of the project.? The overall project site plan (PUD)? had been posted to the Ruppert O’Brien website at the following address: http://www.ruppertobrien.com/lombard/Foam%20Board%20for%20Chapel.pdf
There’s no word whether Ruppert O’Brien is still involved in the project or whether the new partners will follow the current PUD.
