Ben Obletz has got another development up his sleeve. This time it’s 23 North Street between Main Street and Franklin/Linwood. Just like Granite Works, Ben plans on renovating the existing mansion and building an addition on the attached empty lot. He had this to say about the development, “We bought the property because we love the neighborhood. Plans are to build 35 to 40 loft units similar to what we did at Granite Works. This project will be market-rate housing units. We have not yet chosen an architect though we have narrowed it down to two. The mansion is not in as bad of shape as Granite Works was… we are going to do our best to bring back this beauty.”
23 North is located around the corner from Tapestry Charter School. It goes hand in hand with other developments such as Artspace. The mansion formerly housed a flower shop, though in recent years the elements have taken a toll on the structure.
