First wave of MidTown Renaissance residential..finished!

Here's a story that just came up last week. For those who don't know, Bob Howard and Mickey Clagg have finished with their first round of residential properties in their MidTown Renaissance portfolio. For some background info, their MidTown Renaissance projects is a series of 30+ buildings in the Midtown area (bounded by NW 13th/NW 6th and Classen/Broadway)..the first wave of restaurants and retail was opened 2-3 years ago, with the restaurant row around the new Walker Circle. This includes Irma's, McNellie's, new bakery, Midtown Y, 1492 Latin Fusion, Midtown Deli, a new Italian restaurant being developed, and many other great places.

Now, 2-3 years later, and after the portfolio has switched hands, the first wave of residential is finished, but it's nowhere near where we all expected. While it's true that lots of preliminary renovation work has been done on some of the more prominent buildings, like the Traveler's Life Bldg, the Osler Bldg, the Heritage Bldg (redubbed 1212 Walker), Pat's Lounge (redubbed The Packard), and others. But the first three residential renovations, totaling 16 units total, are up by Francis and NW 12th (north of St. Anthony = NoSA maybe?, i.e. "SoSA").

909 NW 12th, 905 NW 12th, and 1217 N Francis, to be exact. These are the links to the information I'm getting for this post..

1217 Francis

3 story - 2 units on each story (6 units), each unit 800-850 sf, 1 bed/1 bath, and starting at $950.

909 NW 12th

2 story - 4 units on each story (8 units), each unit 800-870 sf, 1 bed/1 bath, starting at $950.

905 NW 12th

2 story - 1 unit on each story (2 units), each unit 1250 sf, 2 bed/2 bath/2 living room (or study), and going for around $1500.

Those are great buildings, but unfortunately they are kind of surrounded by nothingness.
