City Grants Extension To Jefferson Lofts Project

The St. Joseph City Commission has approved a one year extension for the Planned Unit Development designation for the Jefferson Lofts project. Jefferson Lofts is a condominium development within the former Jefferson School on South State Street. The project has been inching toward completion for the past year after getting several starts and stops over the years. This week, commissioners were told by the project’s developer five units are still being finished, and a few finishing touches are still needed for some of the landscaping. The developer  expects to have Jefferson Lofts totally completed by the end of 2018. The commission granted him the approval. The Planned Unit Development for Jefferson Lofts was first granted in 2006. The current developer’s application was approved in 2014, and it was granted a one-year extension in December of 2016. This last extension is expected to be the last one needed.
