In August 2007, BREW reported a limited partnership formed by Trammel Crow Residential of Dallas, Tex. paying $3.931 million to acquire the land and planning to develop the apartments. Those plans were shelved after the economy collapsed and the project has been on hold for the past decade.

(Chandler Wonderly, Anthony Wonderly, principals) will now take a run at developing the apartments.
