What's This?

An excited tipster wrote in this week about a new infill project in the Highlands. Located at 2068 Douglass Boulevard, the so-called Montgomery Apartments will soon rise on a long-vacant lot near the corner of Dorothy Avenue in the Douglass Loop neighborhood.

The three-story building will occupy a vacant parcel on a street mixed with low-rise multi-family buildings and single-family homes. The new structure appears to follow the pattern of development established throughout the 20th century, a low multi-family structure with a similar scale as its neighbors. The site does not sit in a preservation or overlay district, but it appears the design fits well on this street.

Multiple calls to the developer, Richard Smith of Omega Construction Management & Development, were not returned by press time, so details remain scarce. The building permit, issued on December 31, 2014, notes that the 7,926 square-foot brick building will include six 2-bedroom apartments. Our tipster also reported that a larger sidewalk tree has already been removed.
