Phases II and III of the Bedford Hill Apartments project consisted of 116 and 88 units respectively, situated on an expansive 11.6-acre site. The 204 units are distributed across 25 residential buildings, ranging from 4 to 10 units per building. These include a mix of row townhouses and garden-style buildings. Additionally, a management building and maintenance garage complement the residential structures. The development features essential amenities like surface parking, mailboxes, tot lots, screened trash areas, and decorative lighting. The exteriors showcase a blend of siding and brick finishes, with 3 buildings located on remote parcels within ¼ mile of the site.

Site infrastructure was delivered under a separate contract for this development. This portion of work involved the necessary removal of 18,000 tons of coal to allow for the site to be graded to design elevations. Mistick reviewed several proposals from coal vendors to procure the best deal for the city and obtained an incidental coal removal permit.
