MGE building project moves forward

mgeThe city council planning and zoning committee on Wednesday approved and advanced a plan that the developer said could bring 500 new residents to Midtown.

The project, which begins with renovating the MGE building at Broadway and 34th street into 101 apartments, goes to the city council today for final approval.

It also calls for a new building just south of there with 18,000 square feet of office and retail space.

Developer Joseph Kashani said he hoped to attract a high quality restaurant to the top of that building.

A third phase calls for a five-story building to the west with two 54-unit apartment buildings and a fourth phase would build 20 units of new town houses.

“This project definitely will change the outlook of Midtown,” Kashani said. “The area needs new life, a new vision.”

    “The area needs new life, a new vision.” Not the thing to say when you’re trying to win friends and influence people.
