Developer targets opening by month’s end for $10M apartment complex

DHTC Development LLC is targeting an opening by month’s end for its new Nordic Landing affordable housing project along the Grant Avenue Parkway corridor.

That’s according to Debbie Shantz Hart, co-owner of DHTC Development, who spoke yesterday about Nordic Landing during Springfield Business Journal’s 12 People You Need to Know interview series. She was interviewed by SBJ Executive Editor Christine Temple at The Backlot, Alamo Drafthouse Springfield’s restaurant and bar.

“We just got our certificate of occupancy today,” Hart said.

Finishing touches include fencing to get the 41-unit, nearly 40,000-square-foot apartment complex at 810 W. Catalpa St. ready to go, she said. DHTC Construction LLC and BP Builders LLC served as general contractors for the project designed by Kansas City-based Stark Wilson Duncan Architects Inc., according to past reporting.

Unique to Nordic Landing are plans for a day care center, part of a series of social services at the development “to help individuals move along the continuum,” Hart said.

“Affordable housing is great, but the day care costs can be two times that,” she said. “We think this is really a great thing. It’s not finalized yet, but we think it’s something that’s going to happen.”

Hart said DHTC Development would work with an undisclosed partner on the day care center.

Also on the project site off Grant Avenue, a groundbreaking ceremony was held in February for The Risdal Family Center for Great Futures, a multimillion-dollar teen center from Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield Inc., according to past reporting.
