It's taken almost twenty years, but the long-vacant former site of Central High School in Superior might finally be seeing some development.  At its meeting scheduled for September 11, the city's Plan Commision is expected to hold a public meeting about the plans that P&R Properties have for a $23 million mixed-use building development called Central Flats - which would blend apartments with commercial space.

The proposed development would encompass the entire vacant block that sits along the north side of Belknap - between Grand and Weeks Avenues - north to 14th Street.  The site used to be home to Central High School - a building that was razed in 2004.  A plan to develop it was started in 2008 - even creating a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District; however, the soft economy at the time prevented any movement from taking place.

Now, P&R Properties is ready to move forward.  As proposed, Central Flats would encompass 130 apartments - in a variety of one and two-bedroom units along with studio and efficiency apartments.  Some lower street-facing commercial property units would also be available for lease.

The public meeting on September 11 is scheduled for 4:00 PM in Room 201 of the Government Center.
