So the new residents get to mow their parking pads? :wink:
While the larger apartment buildings would have been fantastic, these will work just fine. There's plenty of other open land in the area for future phases of apartments.

One critique: I wish they would have put the balconies on the front, not overlooking the parking pad. Not many people will want to sit outside and look at their car parked below.
^ I don't think the switch from apartments is too much of a problem either but I'm not sure it's true there is plenty of open/vacant land for infill apartments in the area, either north or south of Manchester.

There's some mixed-use redevelopment opptys still along Manchester that will require some demo of low-slung, under-utilized space (like that SLMPD facility) but even the ability to do something like the planned apartments on Arco by Restoration STL by clearing numerous contiguous vacant shotguns seems rather limited moving forward.
