Tear down of old Skillman apartments underway


The defunct Toscana apartments at 6800 Skillman have stood abandoned for a couple of years now.

The site has been used for some police and SWAT training. And the property owner, Prescott Realty,  released plans for a replacement project.

The new construction, as we reported in May, will look like this:

… four-story, 665-unit apartment project with structured parking to a three-story, 365-unit apartment project with surface and tuck-under garage parking. Combined, nine structures will have a rentable residential floor area of approximately 295,000 square feet and approximately 10,000 square feet of clubhouse use …

We now are seeing significant movement at the site, and yesterday a bulldozer plowed one of the old buildings.

Before long, the old Toscana will be completely razed. The developers expect residents of the new building to include “young professionals, new singles and empty nesters,” according to promotional materials.
