Developers are one step closer to finishing the project around the historic Mueller tower.

Ryan Cos. officially broke ground on an unnamed 345-unit multifamily project in the Mueller neighborhood March 3.

The project will consist of two midrise—three- to five-story—buildings and approximately 2,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space located near the corner of Berkman Drive and McCurdy Street. The complexes will offer one- to three-bedroom apartments with 15% being available to families making less than 60% of the area median family income.

A tree-lined public pathway will connect the 1961 Robert Mueller Municipal Airport control tower and an upcoming public plaza to nearby John Gaines Park.

Construction is expected to be complete in late 2023.

The project was initially set to break ground by the end of 2021.
