One year after we last dropped by, Holland Partner Group's massive Sixth & Bixel development has begun to take form.

The $200-million development, located at 6th and Bixel Streets in City West, will consist of a pair of six-story structures designed by architecture firm Togawa Smith Martin.  When completed, the two buildings will comprise 606 residential units, 25,000 square feet of ground-level commercial space and parking accommodations for up to 762 vehicles.  Other amenities include a fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool and multiple rooftop decks.

The project also entails the recently-completed adaptive reuse of a 1920s medical office building at the 6th Street and Lucas Avenue.  The eight-story edifice, now called the Mint, contains a total of 42 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments.  A leasing website boasts that building features its original terrazo corridor and a grand lobby with an open spiral staircase and historic brass elevators.

The Mint also features 27 units reserved as affordable housing, in accordance with a density bonus granted for the Sixth & Bixel development.

Completion of the full project was most recently scheduled for late 2016.

Directly cross the street, a similar mixed-use complex from Jade Enterprises is currently in the planning stages.
