In the last few months there has been a lot of neighborhood chatter about a proposed new development on the property of St. Joseph’s Seminary. This land is just north of Brookland, around 12th and Webster/Allison Streets, next to Providence Hospital. We don’t post about topics until we have something verified to refer readers to, and it looks like things are taking shape now. The developer is EYA, which also brought us the nearby Chancellor’s Row development, and they are calling this one “12th and Allison”. From their website:
EYA is excited to share that we are partnering with the Josephites to create a new home community on a portion of the land around the St. Joseph Seminary in the beautiful Michigan Park neighborhood. We look forward to seeking community input and creating a plan that responds to this feedback and is compatible with the neighborhood.
Neighbors of St. Josephs have their own website here to share information, including a community survey:
We believe it is critical to document community concerns about EYA’s proposed development at St. Joseph’s Seminary. We have designed a comprehensive survey that is easy to answer and takes 10 minutes to complete.
The community website also has this informative presentation from EYA that provides a lot of preliminary details, including:
- The PUD/Zoning request will be submitted this spring
- The development will be townhomes/rowhouses
- Construction is planned to begin fall 2017
- Delivery of first homes fall 2018
The next community meeting about this development will be February 2, 2016 when EYA will present at the Michigan Park Citizens Association meeting at 7:00 PM, location TBD. We will let you when we hear anything notable.
