Last week we were at the other end of Turtle Creek. This week we’re sort of in the middle – the Cedar Springs and Turtle Creek area. In these few blocks we have a simmering skirmish, Church rummage sale, a long-time owner looking to raise a poky lot to high-rise heights, and an “ink still wet” deal.
In 2003, when the Renaissance converted from apartments to condos, there was discussion to “square off” their lot and purchase the roughly half-acre lot at 3407 Hall owned by George Poston. A deal was never struck when Mr. Poston’s price, pegged by sources at $600,000, wasn’t met. Over the years, attempts have been made by developers to acquire the lot – all unsuccessful.
