I'll be honest, the "quick hits" news has been a little sparse lately. There was so much in 2018 that I thought 2019 might be slower. That still may be the case, but this is a big announcement. It's another win for downtown office space (which continues to be drastically undersupplied).

This space is the gravel parking lot just east of Bull City Ciderworks, across from Bullhouse. One building will be on this lot and the second, it appears, will be on another lot that they also own, right next to the current Venable Center. In fact, thanks to reader elevatoroperator for pointing out that this might be the "Bullhouse Phase II" that I wrote about in the development watchlist recently. It's a different developer and slightly different address, but that doesn't mean it couldn't have been a temporary code for the project. It DOES feature 200 apartments, just like Bullhouse Phase II indicated.


  1. If you look at the rendering picture there is actually two buildings. The office buildings, pictured, towering over the Venable Center, and then to the right the parking garage and apartments which would be on the gravel lot. So this is two buildings unless they are joined at the ground level.

    1. Thanks, and yep! Two buildings - I have that listed up top. In terms of the lots they are on, yes it is a little tricky because it spans more than just the gravel lot. I will make that update.

  2. Great stuff, Dave! I love getting the quick hits alerts on my phone. This part of town will be so different in just a couple years.
