This site just south of Davenport was recently sold for $6m by DTZ Barnicke. Used to be a gas station. I was thinking 5-8 residential storeys with retail at grade.

$6M seems a bit cheap for a lot in that neck of the woods....Maybe the land is contaminated from when it was a gas station??????

I believe any land which had a gas station needs to be remediated, esp if converting to residential. That's probably a reason for the lower price.

The design is interesting but again, the retail is terrible. Developers seem to give very little thought to retail spaces. I guess they expect the tenant to animate the space but that frequently doesn't happen. Places like nail salons just throw up a very cheap sign, and away they go. We need to demand much better design and more interesting materials.
