Buckingham project site plan shows new image, name

Buckingham Cos. has a new site plan — with an updated image — of its large-scaled mixed-use project slated for Midtown.

A spring groundbreaking looms for the long-planned development, with Buckingham Cos. planning to prep the site — located at the point at which Broadway, Division Street and 21st Avenue South converge — in April, according to sources. Construction should start in May or June, the sources said.

According to the site plan, the project is being called Buckingham Midtown. Crain Construction will be the general contractor jointly with Buckingham Cos.

To front Division Street and have a 2021 Broadway address, the 17-story, 598,480-square-foot building will offer a 180-room hotel, 350 apartment units, a 630-space parking garage and office, restaurant and retail spaces. Its price tag is an estimated $120 million.

Based in Indiana, Buckingham Cos. is undertaking the project as Buckingham LUV LLC. Company officials could not be reached for comment.
