Headwall Development

Located at 106 and 108 Broadway, this is another smaller development to hit the Old Five Points neighborhood. Old Five Points is starting to feel a little like the next Central Park area: consistent growth over time with high-end buildings. However, the construction is on a much smaller scale (see Mangum Flats).

I have always thought that Old Five Points was an interesting part of the city. I would love to see this growth continue with interesting businesses in those old, historic-looking storefronts. It could be a really cool, additional, walkable neighborhood.

I am sure people will be up in arms about development at these high price points, but an article that I tweeted recently frames density as a good thing, even the higher-end buildings. The more wealthy people that are moving into high-end condos, the fewer there are to purchase and renovate existing supply for those with less money.

That said, a mix of old and new is important. I would be sad if those old storefronts were demolished as they add great character to the area.
