Construction Watch: 740 Seneca Street

A three-story Larkin District building is springing back to life.  Larkin Development Group has begun renovations to 740 Seneca Street at the corner of Emslie Street.  The three-story building will be a mix of commercial and the first newly- created apartments in the reviving neighborhood.

Larkin Development Group is investing over $250,000 in the renovation of the 8,000 square-foot property to create at least four units of stylish rental apartments that will be designed to appeal to artists and/or young professionals. The first floor will initially be commercial space for a Larkin District Information Center serving as a clearinghouse of resources for established and new residents, visitors, area businesses and their employees. Future use of the first floor is planned for studio space for the residents living above.
