The Flin

February 25, 2019

Demolition of the former structure at The Flin site is complete. Concrete pours and construction of a crane are underway for this 243 unit residential development (Photo looking NW/DTP Jan 2019).


Under Construction:

HSL Properties was approved for a GPLET in March and will spend an estimated $38.5 million for demolition of the existing structure and construction of a new one. Demolition of the 1973 property began in May of 2018, and will be replaced with a proposed 6-story residential building with 220,725 sqft. The project includes 243 market rate apartments that will be studios, one, two and threes bedroom units; 4,500 sqft of ground-floor retail utilizing the salvaged historic structures on site; two levels of underground parking with 262 parking spaces.

Several buildings on the property that are eligible to be listed on State and National Registers of Historic Places will be saved including the Samaniego House, the Flin Building, and the Stables, which all date from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Placita Village, which opened in 1973, had more than 200,000 square feet of office and restaurant space, and a 500-space parking garage which remains open for hourly and monthly parking.

Eglin + Bresler is the architect of the project and Tofel Dent Construction is the general contractor.

Initial concrete pours have commenced and construction of a crane is complete as of February 24, 2019 (crane expected to stay up for approximately 1 year). The project is expected to be completed by Summer/Early Fall of 2020. Find out more detailed information on The Flin by clicking HERE.
