Jewish Federation site - 234 McKee Place

Developer: Walnut Capital

Project summary: The developer demolished the house at 242 McKee Pl. next to the Jewish Federation building. This involved taking the building down to grade and filling it in with gravel to provide more parking on the site. Prior to the demolition, Construction Junction removed any items that could be salvaged. Norelco completed the the demolition. The developer plans to eventually demolish the existing Jewish Federation building, but understanding that there are significant zoning issues and the process would benefit from additional planning, Walnut Capital will continue to lease the main building as an interim use. This will allow more time to collaborate with OPDC on planning and community process about the site overall.
