This survey, originally dated 12/4/59 and signed by Ben Dyer, shows “Parcel B”—the second of three phases of construction that produced Steward Manor Apartments. Parcel B is comprised of the block of Woodland Ct. west of Parkside Dr. (building numbers 2 through 14, respectively). It also includes the asphalt street and parking spaces of Sharon Ct. west of Parkside Dr., although the buildings themselves would come later as part of Parcel C.
The drawing shows incredible detail—much of which hasn’t changed in the nearly 52 years since it was rendered.
Below is a storm drainage plan—also from Ben Dyer Associates in 1959—showing the “existing buildings” of Parcel A (the blocks of Woodland and Sharon Ct. east of Parkside Dr.) as well as the extension of Woodland Ct. that would complete Parcel B.
With 15 buildings, Steward Manor Apartments was nearing the halfway mark. Parcel C would be the final and most ambitious phase yet.
