Third Avenue North Apartments
The subject multi-family development is a 21-story, 270 unit mixed-use building with 298 parking spaces provided within the building. Levels 1 and 2 includes space (approximately 5%) for complimentary non-residential uses such as a fitness center and a coffee bar. Level 1 is also comprised of the entry lobby, building services, mechanical areas, loading, and refuse/recycling collection. Levels 2 through 4 include enclosed self-parking which meets ADA requirements. Level 5 includes residential units, mechanical areas, a swimming pool, and interior and exterior amenity spaces for the residential units above. Levels 6 through 21 include multi-family residential use for a total of 270 units. The building is served by three elevators and two stairs.
The design of the building effectively maintains the scale and massing of the existing and adjacent structures at the streetscape level. The effect of the tower portion of the building is minimized by the step backs from the street frontage, and the façade designs draw on the historic architecture, materiality, and color palette of the buildings in the neighborhood.
Unit amenities will include balconies, stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, modern fixtures and finishes and in-unit washers/dryers. Building/community amenities will include a state-of-the-art fitness center with yoga studio, meeting/business space, a resort-style pool with private cabanas, and an outdoor bar with grilling stations.
