The Kalikow Group has broken ground on their seven-story residential building at 2415 Church Avenue, for which YIMBY has the first renderings. Kalikow Group, WRS Associates, and the Ishay Group are joint owners of the property, and permits were filed for the project in early 2015.
KSQ Architects are responsible for the design. Renderings show the façade as a variation between masonry and a dark metal. Open-air parking and a porte-cochere are depicted behind the building, available for tenants. There will also be a rooftop terrace.
The $29 million development will bring 67 rental units to the neighborhood. The structure will rise to a height of 70 feet, and yield 49,100 square feet of residential space, making the average apartment area 732 square feet. In total, 30 parking spaces will be available for tenants, 18 exposed and 12 enclosed.
The layout includes studios, one- and two-bedroom units all priced at market rates and featuring luxury finishes, high ceilings, open kitchens, along with high-end appliances and in-apartment washer/dryers. Amenities will include a fitness room, recreation library/study, lounge, and an outdoor terrace on second floor and the rooftop. There will also be four private terraces on both floors.
The surrounding area has numerous restaurants, recreation spaces, and cultural facilities. The B35 bus, one of the city’s highest ridership routes, also services the bustling retail strip.
Preliminary work began on the site in September, and construction is set for completion by mid-2019.
