Architecture firm KTGY Architecture + Planning last week revealed details for the design of Main Street in Downtown Superior.

The project will be developed by Morgan Land Holdings and Ranch Capital and includes five blocks within Downtown Superior, the mixed-use development formerly dubbed Superior Town Center. It will include more than 73,000 square feet of commercial space, 446 residential units, a parking garage and more than 7,000 square feet of civic space.

Superior trustees approved the Main Street portion of the project on Dec. 9.

KTGY is the architect for 10 residential, four commercial and four mixed-use buildings, which will house 382 residential units and more than 70,000 square feet of commercial, retail and restaurant space.

On the north side of Main Street, there will be a five-story apartment building with structured parking. There also will be a central plaza that will serve as the public town square.

“The architectural style is a blend of traditional and modern, tying the new development to the surrounding community while elevating the aesthetic,” KTGY principal Terry Willis said in a statement.

The designs are inspired by the area’s rich coal mining history and has a blend of materials including brick and black metal, according to a statement from KTGY.

“We’ve been anxious to see the core part of downtown for several years and it’s great to see so many parts of the development coming together with these plans,” said Mayor Clint Folsom.

Construction should begin in the second quarter of this year, with the first phase of apartments and retail expected to be ready by the end of summer 2021, Willis said. The final phase is slated for completion in the second half of 2022.
