The Star Uptown is a planned $340 million redevelopment of the 52-acre former Carraway Hospital site in Norwood for residential, hotel, entertainment, office and retail. The project is being proposed by Corporate Realty Development, which acquired the property in late 2020.

CRD is in the process of recruiting a company to use the 125,000 square-foot former Physicians Plaza Building as a headquarters office. The hospital buildings are planned to be renovated as 180 units of "workforce housing". An additional 44 to 48 units of market rate housing are to be constructed on the site by a separate developer, targeted to sell in the $350,000 to $450,000 range. Possible recreational uses include a bowling alley, pickleball courts, concert venues and restaurants. The existing multi-level parking garages would be rehabilitated for re-use.
