Developers get brownfields funds to clean up urban farm property

(Continued)

Hall has said that he plans to develop “clusters” of units on the property. Designers will leave enough green space to permit residents to develop outdoor gardens and to take advantage of a winter greenhouse.

The developer said that land reclamation is almost complete, and site preparation could begin in late October.

Hall and Moskow is one of the largest corporate landholders in the city, owning 27 multifamily buildings containing 85 apartments. Hall has not stated how many units will be constructed on Cottage Court but suggested the number could be between 20 and 30.

The residences, which would include affordable units, would be available for lease, not sale. Hall has estimated that the lease could be $2,000 per month.
