P&R Properties hosted a ground breaking ceremony Wednesday afternoon for their upcoming Lincoln Park Flats apartment complex.
“We’re going to start the project here with footings in the next week and it’s set to be complete in spring of 2022,” said Megan Holsclaw, a property manager with P&R Properties.
The apartment building will feature 74 units, both studios and two bedrooms, and is expected to bring close to 130 new people to the Lincoln Park community.
“This apartment is going to bring a fun hip vibe to this area as well as many new people who are going to live here and be excited to walk to local shops, restaurants, and breweries,” said Holsclaw. “Hopefully they shop and eat really close to where they live.”
Local businesses expressed excitement for the new complex. Valeria Bigelow, a manager at Corktown, said between this new apartment building and the ongoing Can of Worms work going on near Lincoln Park, she’s excited for the neighborhoods future.
“Growth anywhere is a sign that a community is prospering and to see an apartment building coming, new shops during a pandemic, that’s promising right there,” said Bigelow.
Solomon Witherspoon, co-owner of Spoon’s Bar and Grill, which is right across the street from the future apartment building said he couldn’t be happier.
“There’s nothing better, literally, then being across the street from a huge apartment complex,” said Witherspoon, “It’s not just an opportunity for me to take care of my family, but to take care of all of my employees and the great city of Duluth and I am absolutely ecstatic and I cannot wait.”
P&R Properties expects it can start signing people to leases in late summer or early fall before the spring 2022 opening.
