Officials broke ground Friday for a new 177-unit luxury apartment complex across West Fourth Street from the new BB&T Ballpark.
The new property, being built by Balfour Beatty Construction for Spectrum Properties, occupies a 1.4-acre site on the same block where a branch of the U.S. Mint was until 1933.
“Unlike the modern look of the high-rise residences around it, The Mint will offer a classic, timeless feel,” Spectrum President Steve McClure said.
It will also offer a two-floor parking deck and amenities including a pet elevator and sky terrace, as well as personal concierge service to help with dry cleaning, reservations or car services.
Never miss a local story.
The Mint marks the latest apartment building to sprout near the baseball stadium. Childress-Klein in January topped out its 22-story Element Uptown property beside Romare Bearden Park. Eric Frazier
