Palms will soon see the construction of two more multifamily residential developments on one of its main commercial thoroughfares.

At 3659-3663 S. Motor Avenue, prolific apartment builder Wiseman Residential recently demolished a pair of small commercial buildings that were most recently occupied by a Montessori school.  Plans call for the construction of a seven-story building in their place, featuring five levels of housing atop a two-level podium containing parking and street-fronting retail space.

City records list the project's architect as Uriu & Associates.


Across the street at 3642 S. Motor Avenue, heavy equipment recently appeared at a vacant lot that was previously developed with a single-story medical office building.  Plans call for the construction of a six-story edifice containing 62 apartments and parking located at-grade and in one basement level.

The Albert Group Architects is designing the contemporary podium-type building.

Property records list the owner of the approximately 14,700-square-foot site as an entity affiliated Evolve Realty & Development Corporation, which purchased the land in April 2019 for $7.4 million.

Similar mixed-use buildings are also planned or under construction at 345136413741, and 3764 Motor Avenue
