Good Space announces 39 new apartments on Bishop

Good Space and Magnolia Property Co. today announced two new apartment buildings planned for North Bishop Avenue.

A 24-unit building is planned for 801 N. Bishop at Canty. And a 15-unit building would be at 908 N. Bishop, between Fifth and Sixth streets.

Proposal for 908 N. Bishop

Dave Spence of Good Space says these drawings are not exactly what the partners have in mind, although they do show the appropriate architecture style and density. They apartments will include xeriscaping, cycling amenities, and front patios that connect with the street, he says. Along with Spence and Randy Primrose of Magnolia, architect Don Wilder, who is designing the buildings, also will be a partner in the project.

The developers are seeking variances for the project, which is tentatively called Magnolia on Bishop.

The variances they’re seeking include permission to create alley-entry parking and a “green wall” of chain-link fence with vines to separate the parking lot from the alley, rather than a solid fence.

The project goes before the board of adjustment next month.

    Wow, these look infinitely more appealing than the mammoth, tasteless monstrosities that dominate the local apartment market and go by the name of “apartment communities.”
