Nordblom, the same developer behind the South End’s 321 Harrison Avenue, wants to convert a vacant three-story nursing home at 735 Truman Highway in Hyde Park’s Fairmount Hill section into a 46-unit apartment complex.
The $6 million project would retain the site’s existing 62 parking spaces, per the Herald’s Donna Goodison. Plus, the development would be less than a half-mile from the Fairmount commuter rail stop.
Nordblom’s plans will also retain the existing building’s footprint and will not expand it—that follows feedback from the surrounding community.
Pending the requisite approvals, construction could start this summer and wrap by next spring.
