The city is springing up around us every day and it can be hard to keep track of all the busy hands working on the latest apartment complex, retail center, or events venue

That’s where we come in to help you stay up-to-date on some of the city’s largest projects. Though a few of these developments won’t be finished until 2023 — like NuLu Crossing — they’ll be ones to watch for their community + economic impact.

Price: $16 million 

Situated in the heart of the Central Business District, this project by SomeraRoad seeks to revamp the Downtown office experience with a two-story atrium facing Jefferson Street, a lobby coffee shop, seating areas, flexible meeting spaces + outdoor seating. See also: a lounge and cocktail bar — with private bourbon lockers — and a greenscaped rooftop terrace for major city views. 

Projected completion date: June 2022
