About 100 people spilled off the Main Street sidewalk near a passing streetcar Tuesday morning at a brief event celebrating the opening of 1914 Main.
The first built-from-scratch apartment building to rise along the streetcar line brought Crossroads and downtown boosters to cheer the development by Linden Street Partners.
Principals Scott Richardson and Andrew Ganahl were complimented by Mayor Sly James for being out-of-towners who recognized the development potential. In turn, Ganahl complimented the city: “We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the investment buy by the city” in the streetcar project, which is set to officially start operating in May.
Architect KEM Studio and general contractor Centric Projects worked on the five-story, 44-unit building that is on a former parking lot.
The building includes a ground-floor retail tenant, Simple Science Juices.
