Developer plans student housing along canal

A local developer has filed plans to build a new apartment complex designed for college students a few blocks east of the Central Canal. The plans for the southeast corner of Capitol Avenue and St. Clair Street call for 30 apartment units in a four-story building on what is now a vacant lot owned by Hulman and Co. The proposal by Jeff Sparks of locally based Di Rimini LLC is scheduled to come before a hearing examiner on Oct. 15. An elevation drawing filed with the city, shown above, says the architect is locally based JT Designers Inc. The working name of the project is Sarojo Commons; Sarojo combines the first names of each of the developer’s children.
