Two building permits with a total value close to $4 million have been obtained to begin construction on a proposed 35-unit apartment complex on the 1300 block of South Scott Street.
Preliminary dirt and plumbing work already has begun on V̶i̶l̶l̶a̶ ̶V̶i̶e̶w̶ Villa Vue* at SOMA, a three-story, two-building development at 1300 Scott St. and 1320 Scott St., which is on the west side of Scott and across the street from the Villa Marre, a house featured on the 1980s sitcom Designing Women, and the historic Rozelle-Murphy House.
The apartment complex, expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2018, will include 11 two-bedroom units and 24 one-bedroom units. The ground-floor units will have porches of "varying sizes and configurations" and walkways connecting to sidewalks fronting Scott, according to the L̶a̶s̶s̶i̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶G̶r̶o̶u̶p̶,̶ ̶w̶h̶i̶c̶h̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶p̶a̶r̶t̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶S̶c̶o̶t̶t̶ ̶S̶t̶r̶e̶e̶t̶ ̶I̶n̶v̶e̶s̶t̶m̶e̶n̶t̶s̶ ̶L̶L̶C̶,̶ Lasiter Group, the holding company for Scott Street Investments, the property's owner.*
*CORRECTION: Lasiter Group is the holding company for Scott Street Investments, the owner of the Villa Vue at SOMA apartment development in the 1300 block of Scott Street. The names of the apartment development and the holding company were misspelled and the holding company’s relationship to Scott Street investments was misstated in a previous version of this story.
