The new Coletrain apartments will be under new ownership, but the floor plan will be the same. The complex will feature 62 apartments with 60 underground parking spots. There have been several extra safety features added to ensure a fire like last fall does not happen again.

Glen Morford - Foreman, HDC Construction: “The apartments are mainly the same but it's all upgraded materials. The attic is completely sprinkled, the building is completely sprinkled where the other one wasn't.”

Construction officials hope to have the project done by late August, early September.
