(Update 12-30-2021) I heard about this one, but the new 35 townhomes at Dieman and Olive road is official. Here is the developer website.
(Original) We can see a lots of new developments, both residential and commercials, at Olivette along the Olive road in last year or so.
Some of the bigger development projects I am aware of: the Oliver (apartments and some retails), Olive Crossing at Olive and 170(apartments, hotels, retail and dining), and the Opus group olivette project. Btw, one of the new neighbors in my neighborhood moved from the last project site (single family home sold to developer and bought new home in my neighborhood). We briefly discussed the trend of apartments over single family houses (SFH) in the younger generation. I am thinking it’s also a desire form the city and the developer as well. Maybe the apartments are more environment friendly compared to SFH.
Back to the topic, there are also two smaller projects along Olive road, the Firestone project (near Price). and the Planthaven commercial center (this is next to the http://biancoproperties.com/property/olivette-shopping-center/).
