McCoys Creek Park at One Riverside Ave will include approximately 2 acres of riverfront public park space along McCoys Creek. The project supports the completion of the McCoys Creek Restoration and Resiliency Project and enhances the adjacent One Riverside Ave private development.
Features of the park include a natural bank along the creek on the park side, the Emerald Trail multi-use path on the west side of the creek, and a pedestrian bridge crossing the creek mid-park. The park will be accessible from Riverside Avenue as well as the Northbank Riverwalk.
Possible park design may begin late 2022/early 2023.
This development proposes a new construction on a Downtown riverfront site which will include 249 apartments, 40 townhouses, four penthouses and 50,000 SF of first-floor retail with a proposed grocery store and pharmacy following the demolition of a never-completed tower on the site.
Investment: $135 Million
Ron Chamblin’s next chapter Downtown is developing the building at 225 N. Laura St., next to his bookstore, into apartments and a restaurant.
“It’s going to be another building that will be occupied and renovated and used,” said Chamblin.
Chamblin proposes to convert the three-story, 6,500-square-foot building into four apartments on the upper two floors and a restaurant on the first floor.
