17th & N

Located on the southwest corner of 17th and N Streets, this project was completed in February 2001.  It consists of an eight one-bedrooms, which was originally located at 1311 15th Street, and a new building, which includes seven one bedroom units and three one bedroom/loft units.

Each building contains two stories over seven individual parking garages and is connected by a new “bridge” at the second and third floors. The exterior of the new building is stucco with a heavy composition shingle roof, similar in design to the existing relocated building. The existing relocated building fronts on N Street with a secondary entrance on the south side and a walk to both the parking garages and 17th Street. The new structure fronts the alley with a secondary entrance on the north connecting the same walk. The ground floor of the relocated building provides a central laundry and individual tenant storage. Each building has seven individual garages that have access via a driveway from the alley. A central trash room is on the ground floor adjacent to the alley.

The primary goal of this development was to move the existing historically sensitive eight unit apartment building originally located at 1311 15th Street in order to vacate that site for the State’s East End Office Project. The design of the new structure is purposely “nondescript” in an effort not to compete with or detract from the existing relocated building. The stucco exterior complements the existing building as well as offers a 5:12 pitched roof in order to offer lofts on the third floor units.
