The Overton Square brand is expanding with the construction of a 16-unit apartment building to go with the existing restaurants, shops and theaters.
Flats at Overton Square will rise on an empty lot on Diana at Monroe, a block southwest of the Midtown entertainment district. Construction is to start this spring and be completed by early 2019.
The development continues a trend toward placing beds in and around the Square to go with all the entertainment and food. Overton Square owner Loeb Properties plans a 100-room boutique hotel next to Hattiloo Theatre, and neighboring landlord Taylor Caruthers plans to erect a building of ground-floor retail and upper-level apartments immediately west of Overton Square, across from the Prairie Farms milk plant.
The three-story Flats at Overton Square will offer four live/work units on the ground floor, and six residential units each on the second and third floors. Those units cannot be used for retail, but tenants can operate an office identified with a small placard.
