The Rebirth of 34 Southport St (Former Swansea Plaza)?

There are signs of life at the long-vacant former Swansea Plaza at 34 Southport St. A new developer, the State Building Group, has purchased the property and is working on plans for two condominium towers, some townhomes and about 10,000 sq ft of retail space. If all goes well, residential units could be ready for occupation by late 2013.
