Gateway Expansion Tour this weekend

Mayor Mallory will be there to kick things off at 10am at the corner of 13th and Republic. The tour, which is free and open to the public, takes place tomorrow (5/30) and will last from noon to 4pm.

Those going will be able to tour the six new buildings being celebrated. The new units range in price from $140,000 to $350,000 with many boasting rooftop decks/patios that have spectacular city views.

So far the nearly $84 million of investment that has occurred, in the Gateway Quarter, has created 86 new condos (66 sold) and some 50,000 square feet of street-level retail space. This latest phase will bring an additional 106 new units to the neighborhood. Roughly 12% of these are already under contract.
