The name of the 50 unit proposed apartment building is Richmond Overlook designed by the firm of Winks and Snowa. The apartment would be located on Cowardin between Stonewall and Springhill. The design of the apartment isn’t of concern, it’s the developers track record. The developer is Bridgeland Devleopers. If you take a look at past projects by Bridgeland you’ll find that nearly all (at least all that I checked) are rent controlled. From one resident of Springhill we hear why that is a concern.
Our neighborhood already supports a 70 unit fully subsidized housing apartment building. Our 9 block neighborhood with 35 owner occupied single family homes cannot take much more. We feel we more then share our burden of subsidized housing in the city.
