An old apartment building was torn down to make way for “The Milo on Ponce,” where units will start at nearly $1M

An old brick apartment building on Ponce de Leon Avenue, not far from Freedom Parkway, has fallen in the name of new development.

The structure, which formerly housed the Open Door Shelter, was one of many two-story multifamily buildings that line the street in the neighborhood.

In its place, Hudson Development plans to construct The Milo on Ponce, an eight-unit townhome development.

The homes will be built at the eastern edge of the narrow lot, with a long driveway running the length at the west, connecting to an alley at the rear of the property.

Plans call for two housing types at The Milo on Ponce, with two “urban villas” and six “sawtooth” townhomes. Both options feature three bedrooms and two-car garages. They will stand four stories tall, with rooftop patios and either three and a half, or two and a half, bathrooms.

Shared amenities include a bocce ball court and, well, four guest parking spaces. Predicted to start at $950,000, the homes are not yet available for presale.
