EYA Files Plans For 82 Townhomes at Josephites Site in Michigan Park: Figure 1

Developer EYA filed plans recently with the Zoning Commission for the construction of 82 townhomes on the grounds of the Josephites Seminary in Michigan Park. The development site is bounded by 12th, Allison, Sargent, 13th, and Varnum streets (map).

Under the plans, the Josephites will remain in the four-story seminary building they’ve called home since 1929 while EYA will add the rowhouses and a good amount of green space on the remaining six acres. The townhomes will largely be three-bedroom houses, many with backyards. Approximately 12 percent will be set aside as affordable.

A series of public meetings in recent months led to the development team significantly reducing the number of residential units planned for the site (from 150 to 82) and increasing the amount of green space to 2.5 acres.

Dubbed 12th & Allison, the KTGY Group-designed development could break ground as early as Spring 2018.
