The structure will eventually comprise 23,562 square feet and replace a three-story residential property and an associated parking lot. The mix of units will include four studio apartments and 21 one-bedrooms.
The first floor will house a residential lobby with access to a communal laundry room and parking facilities. The partially enclosed facility is designed to accommodate up to eight vehicles and 13 bicycles. On the seventh floor, residents will have access to a shared roof terrace.
The renderings depict a contemporary take on a classic design, with a massing consisting of two volumes with staggered roof heights. The façade appears to be composed of light gray masonry or cementitious material, and the grid of windows is surrounded by dark gray accenting. Dark-colored cornices cap the building.
To improve the structure’s air tightness and overall energy performance, the design team has incorporated interior thermal insulation, double-glazed windows, and energy efficient lighting systems.
