At the site of a former bank at 940 W. North Temple, Greenprint Fairpark is getting its podium poured. OZ Development has also been expanding their Greenprint micro-unit transit-oriented brand in Central 9th.

The building will be a podium plus five stories. It will consist of 150 micro studio apartments, with five ground-floor units that are convertible to retail (per the TSA-UN-C zoning). The developers expect an August 2021 completion date.
