New Six-Unit Residential Structure to be Added to Compton Gate Condominiums Site (3606 Flad)

A new six-unit residential building will rise on the Compton Gate Condos site on South Grand, just west of Compton Heights in the Shaw neighborhood. The parcel is addressed as 3606-16 Flad. The permit amount is $810,000 and the listed contractor is The Building Pros.

The six townhouses will sit to the rear (west) of the existing Compton Gate Condos, completed in 2007. The foundation for this smaller structure was poured around then, but the recession halted construction until now.

Duffe Nuernberger Realty has the site listed as “sold” for the price of $75,000 on its website. That link also contains a rendering, shown below:

These six new townhouse units are styled similarly to the existing building, shown below (image courtesy of Duffe Nuernberger Realty):

Shaw Neighborhood Continues to Show Its Strength

In a departure from the usual posting format, we offer you a link to an incredible array of small-scale rehab and new construction projects, all in the same neighborhood—Shaw.

The Shaw Neighborhood Housing Corporation’s recent development summary may be found here.

Below is just one example from the site—4006 Shenandoah, which has been covered on this blog previously here.

The Shaw neighborhood has been a popular neighborhood on this blog for obvious reasons. With the potential development of the entire 4100 block of DeTonty mentioned at the end of the above-linked blog post (see map here), the Shaw neighborhood may soon have very few vacant buildings or lots.

Be sure to click the Shaw tag below to see other projects that are underway or have been completed recently in the neighborhood.

Update: New Single Family Home at 4274 Flad in Shaw Nearly Complete

The new single family home at 4274 Flad in the Shaw neighborhood is nearing completion. This is the first of two new single family homes currently under construction in Shaw.

This site was once home to a two-family building that suffered a rear collapse. The building was later demolished. While some in the neighborhood mourned the loss of a historic building in such an intact district, the site was not vacant for long. The demolition of the old two-family was completed in May 2012; a permit for the new construction below was issued in July 2012.

Below is a recent photograph of the nearly completed building:
