MAC Properties, redeveloper of 24 buildings along Armour Boulevard since 2007, plans to construct its first new building in the city.
The City Plan Commission today recommended approval of a plan and rezoning for the five-story mixed use building at 3435 Main St.
There was no opposition and the project now goes to the city council for final approval.
The plan calls for 84 apartments, 54 parking spaces and 2,500 square feet of retail.
Peter Cassel, director of MAC properties and Silliman Group, which is also involved in the projects, said this is the latest among three projects called “Armour Main Redevelopment.”
In all, he said, they will add 182 market rate apartments, 32,000 square feet of retail and office space and more than 350 parking spaces in Midtown.
The first started last summer with renovation of an office building into 59 apartments at 301 E. Armour. It will include 30,000 square feet of retail and is to be finished next summer.
Cassel said they are working on retail tenants there and “are having good discussions with a restaurant, coffee shop and a few gym operators.”
The second phase is the ongoing renovation of the former Interstate Bakeries Hostess Headquarters office building at 12 E. Armour.
It will become 39 apartments and is to be done by September of next year.
