When one downtown Fresno development from Granville Homes opens, the dirt on another begins moving.
Construction is underway on the homebuilder’s ninth project in the Mural District called Brio! on Broadway.
The builder celebrated the grand opening of its Crichton Place development on L and San Joaquin streets in July. And looks like some heavy machinery started underground work Monday on a lot near the Metropolitan Museum, on Van Ness Avenue and Stanislaus Street, where Granville plans more apartments.
Back at Brio, 14 new two- and three-story buildings are being built and an existing house, formerly home to the Marjaree Mason Center, is under renovation on Broadway Street, between San Joaquin and Calaveras streets.
Brio will have 52 units ranging in size from 602 square feet to 2,173 square feet. The house will be used as a clubhouse.
Some apartments will have an attached garage and private patios or balconies. All units will have energy efficient appliances, custom cabinets, and white quartz counters.
Rents will range from $825 to $1,500.
A construction tour of the project will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Hard hats will be provided. Closed-toed shoes are required.
Brio is expected to be completed early next year. For information visit www.RentGranville.com.
