Construction work started this week at The Linden at the former Famous Dave’s site at 43rd & Upton.
The opening is slated for July 2017.
Half of the ground-floor commercial space is leased (with a tenant yet to be announced), and developer Jake Schaffer said additional space is available for a restaurant. Six of the 29 apartments have been leased, he said.
Schaffer said they’re aiming for condo-quality kitchen sizes, appliances and finishes, with larger-than-average outdoor spaces and balconies. Rents start at $2,500 per month and top out at $10,000 per month, with average units at 1,200-1,300 square feet.
A community presentation on the plan for the corner pocket park is Tuesday, Aug. 16 from 6:30-8 p.m. at Linden Hills Park.
