Construction moving swiftly on Crichton Place in downtown Fresno

Posted by BoNhia Lee on January 9, 2014 

Construction begins at Crichton Place.


The urban development arm of Fresno’s Granville Homes has started construction on another downtown living space.

The frames for Crichton Place, on L and San Joaquin streets in the Mural District, are going up. The 28-unit townhome project from GV Urban replaces a pair of century-old dilapidated homes that were torn down more than two years ago.

The two-story buildings will have 1,400-square-foot units with three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and an attached garage. Some units will have private covered patios. The development will be gated and will have a courtyard for entertaining.

The monthly rent will range from $1,400 to $1,525. The project is expected to be completed by June.

Crichton Place is the fifth GV Urban project downtown. The developer opened 1612 Fulton, a 30-unit live and work complex, on Fulton Street in June. Before that, GV Urban built Bungalow Court, 330 Van Ness Cottages and Fulton Village.
