What was previously West Catholic Prep’s parking lot is now the location of The Clark, a new mid-range apartment complex.
The ground in which the building sits had belonged to the archdiocese for well over a century.
The deal also comes with the condition that 10% of the apartments have affordable rents for tenants earning 60% of the area median income.
The building features a number of references to broadcasting and pop music, two staples of the long-running dance show.
Most notably, there are various murals in the elevator lobbies that turn into things like microphones, car radios, and other broadcast-related objects when viewed through a phone’s camera.
