New development proposed in our neighboring neighborhood – Optimist Park.


If you love Abari and Joe’s Doughs so much you’d like to live in walking distance, you’re in luck. A new apartment community is in the works next door.

The as-yet-unnamed community is early in the process. Miller-Valentine Group is seeking a rezoning for the property, with plans for 275 units and either office or retail space on the ground floor.

It’s one block from the Parkwood Station of the LYNX Blue Line Extension, which opening late next year and causing an apartment building boom in this area. It’s also pretty close to Tompkins Hall, the new food hall project that’s similar to Chelsea Market in NYC.


Look for a public hearing on this project later this fall.
