A new unique urban development spanning two city blocks comprised of (23) 3-story single-family townhomes with unprecedented private outdoor space, underground parking and pilot house to rooftop terrace. The below-surface parking allows for (2) parking spaces per townhome. In addition to the (approximately) 400 sq. ft private rear yards, residents can also enjoy the park like common area atop the raised plaza which includes a dog park.

Each townhome has (3) bedrooms, (3) baths, and (1) half bath. The entrance into each home from the below-grade parking opens into a mudroom and family room. There is also a powder room located on this level. The ground floor is raised 3’-0” above grade establishing a private recessed entry for each home. The living room, kitchen, and dining room are all located on the first floor and can be accessed from the main entrance along the street, as well as from each rear yard. The second-floor houses both bedrooms, each with a personal bathroom and large closet. The laundry room is located on this floor as well, providing easy access. An optional elevator can be installed upon request and runs from the cellar floor up to the master bedroom suite on the third floor.

The exterior façades echo the existing fabric of the neighborhood through the generous use of red brick with limestone accents while adding a modern feel through the application of metal panels. By limiting the height of the project to (3) stories, this new development fits nicely in the area without overpowering the adjacent neighbors, creating an attractive balance between old and new.
