Bakke Development Corp. is looking to redevelop the site of former headstone maker Meier Bros. Monuments on South St. Mary’s.
The project by Sabot Development will consist of 299 market-rate units, 12,000 square feet of retail and 429 parking spaces.
An unnamed 29-story hotel-and-condo tower is being proposed where the former WOAI-TV building currently stands vacant on the River Walk.
