Not sure who the developer is though. KEM developed the rendering though, which is great.

There is no developer yet. Rick Powell is just filing a plan with the city that he can then turn around and try to sell to a developer--I assume after he gets City approval.

I don’t know, I think it’s exciting. I wish every empty lot in the north loop and east village had a preliminary rendering for it that investors could easily plug their money into.

Good point, that would be nice.

But it doesn't appear that he plans to build it. He is getting out of real estate.
A redevelopment proposal that would allow construction of a five-story apartment or hotel project above an existing garage at Ninth and Wyandotte has been filed with the city as part of a plan to sell the property.

Rick Powell wants to sell the former John’s Garage at 913 Wyandotte and adjoining vacant McWhirter Printing Co. building at 915-917 Wyandotte.

To make the deal more appealing to a potential buyer, he’s seeking city approval for a commercial redevelopment plan called 909 Wyandotte.
It doesn't mean this plan will be built. Another property owner could buy it just for the parking, or come up with a completely different plan entirely.

Putting a garage here was part of the plan for Union Carbide going back a decade. There was supposed to be a sky bridge from it to the condos

I also noticed there was a big sign across the street to the west advertising the surface parking lot for sale. It's 205 W. 9th on the parcel viewer.

That was the Savoy's lot. Looks like this would be the owner who bought it from the hotel.

Seems strange that a hotel would sell off its' parking.
