Work could begin next spring on a new four-story apartment complex set to go up on the growing west side of Colorado Springs.
That area of the city has become increasingly popular, primarily because it is only 5 miles to the west of downtown Colorado Springs.
The development company Goodwin Knight wants to build what will be 54 efficiency and one-bedroom apartment units, ranging in size from 376 square feet to 665 square feet, at the northeast corner of Colorado Avenue and South Chestnut Street.
The site in question is currently a parking lot.
The Colorado Springs-based Goodwin Knight group spearheaded the construction two years ago of the 22 Spruce Apartments, an infill project complex with 48 apartment units, also in Colorado Springs.
The project will be going up in a part of the city emphasizing village-like walkable space and populated with one-story retail and restaurant offerings.
