Paul McRedmond, owner of the lot at the northeast corner of 12th Avenue and Montrose, is developing the residential/retail project to be located at 2516 12th Ave. S. The building, called 12 South Center, will offer retail spaces on the first floor, one apartment on the first floor, and 16 apartments on floors two and three.
McRedmond said he is already getting some interest in the retail spots. He initially hoped to break ground in 2013 but it took some time to get started.
McRedmond purchased the lot for $68,000 in 1996. Most recently, the site was home to a lawn and garden business.
