Developers are saying the Broad Street Armory is in terrible shape and cannot be saved. After going as far to draft up a design with the structure included, they've now decided to scrap it for an all new building with 50 apartments and a surface parking lot. It would seem the Neighbors Association took to the demo kindly, at least according to the member that wrote.
"All in all there was no real opposition. And in the 25 or so years I've been doing this, I have never seen a meeting with this many people (about 60) and this large a project go this smoothly."So don't cry for Armory. Onwards. The 2-bedroom rental apartments will go for $1,500 to $2,900 a month.
