The Vickery Towers before Trammell Crow Residential bought the property.

There had been talk that this month would be when a groundbreaking took place on the property where the Vickery Towers once stood. However, it looks like we’ll have to wait until next year to see what structure will rise on Greenville and Belmont.

Construction on the residential project is slated to begin sometime in January 2017, according to Matt Enzler, managing director at Trammell Crow Residential, which purchased the 8.3 acres of property. While the first residences won’t open until late 2018, the project does have a name: Alexan Lower Greenville.

An update from the Lower Greenville Neighborhood Association reported there will be approximately 50 to 60 townhouse and a central facility with 350 to 400 apartments. The LGNA also noted the current cell tower equipment on Belmont will be moved to the rooftop and the tower will be removed when the central building is finished.
