Looks like the Southstar Lofts are progressing quickly: this morning, at the corner of South and Broad, workers were in the process of lifting the beginnings of walls onto the building.
The South Star Lofts are expected to be ready for occupancy by this summer, but time will tell whether that estimate bears out. The completed building will have 85 rental units, and will include studios, one bedrooms, and two bedrooms. Regardless of when the residential tenants move in, it looks like Dranoff is already looking for retail tenants to fill the 10,000 sq ft of first floor space set aside for restaurants and stores.
