The residential project on the corner of Van Ness Avenue and Stanislaus Street is called The Lede, which rhymes with feed. It’s a journalism term that refers to the first sentence or paragraph of a story.
The name is “meant to pay homage to the property’s news-oriented roots,” according to Granville’s rental and property management company website.
The latest plan calls for a mix of 85 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments and commercial space to be built on 2.3 acres of land surrounded by Van Ness Avenue, Calaveras, Fulton and Stanislaus streets.
Never miss a local story.
Granville bought the entire block except for the Bee building which was last home to the Fresno Metropolitan Museum, and the historic former Theater 3 building which still stands on Fulton.
The project is expected to begin next year.
