TM Montante Development has converted this building along Gates Circle into two apartments and office space.
A pair of luxury apartments in a century-old private residence marks another sign of TM Montante Development’s transformation of properties near the now-closed Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital.
TM Montante has turned a portion of the house, located at 40 Gates Circle and just across Lafayette Avenue from the former hospital site, into two apartments. TM Montante is using a portion of the building’s first floor for sales and marketing office.
The larger of the two apartments has 2,040-square-feet and includes three bedrooms, a working fireplace, den and offers views of Gates Circle.
The second unit, a one-bedroom unit, has 780-squate-feet.
An open house for both is set for 11:30 a.m., Jan. 24.
TM Montante is in the early stages of turning the Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital into the Lancaster Square, a mixed-use urban complex with neighborhood retail including a possible supermarket, various residential units, commercial and medical office space.
Amenities include a center, community square and the extension of Lancaster Avenue from Delaware Avenue to Linwood Avenue.
Canterbury Woods is also developing an independent senior apartment complex on the property that’s due to open later this year.
Between Canterbury Woods and TM Montante’s projects, more than $140 million is being invested to transform the hospital property.
