Fort Capital Unveils Plans For Richard Meier Condo Towers In South Of Fifth

Renderings of two proposed South of Fifth condo towers have been revealed by Fort Capital and obtained by the Herald.

The proposal is being designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier.

A complex of retail and restaurant space would be built at the base of the 410-foot towers, surrounded by a public park.

The developer is willing to pay the city $100 million for the air rights needed to build the towers, with the funds going towards building a streetcar. The developer would also pay for improvements to the South Pointe Elementary school across the street, and fund traffic calming on Alton Road.

Fort needs to win public support in a referendum for the air rights, along with city approval for an FAR increase. The developer is hoping to have the issue placed on the November ballot.
