After two weeks of watching demolition crews clear the way for a 183-unit apartment project at the corner of Maple Street and West Avenue, it’s only natural to wonder what the area will look like after its major makeover.

Fortunately, the designers of the project have released a couple of renderings to help quench our curiosity.

Once complete, the five-story complex – called 555 Maple – will take up the entire city block between Lafayette and Maple streets, just east of Frisco Trail and the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad tracks.

Developers Seth Mims and Jeremy Hudson are working with Fayetteville architecture firm Modus Studio on the project. For those unfamiliar, this is the same team behind Eco Modern Flats, the first LEED-certified, multi-family development in the state. That complex, located at 130 S. Hill Avenue just south of the University of Arkansas campus, was awarded a LEED Platinum certification, the highest recognition awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The team is also seeking LEED certification for 555 Maple.

Thanks to the folks at Modus Studio for sharing these renderings with the Flyer.
