On a recent, sunny Thursday, the b9 team visited three of our job sites on Capitol Hill, all within a remarkable (less than) quarter mile radius of each other. The three projects represent a range of our work, from 10 townhomes on two parcels at 12th Avenue East and E Harrison Street, where we are co-developer/architect (1 on map); to a 51 unit apartment building that will become the south west corner of 12th Avenue E and E John Street (2); to 5 rowhouses just a block away at the corner of 13th Avenue E and E John Street (3). We are excited to have three distinct and innovative projects all under construction in this incredible, urban neighborhood.
We enjoy contributing to the conversation about how to grow our neighborhoods (and city) responsibly, and how to add density that is effective and equitable. We create outdoor spaces that encourage and enrich community, and design compelling architecture that is enhancing in all ways to its inhabitants and surroundings.
The 5 rowhouses at 13th E and E John Street is furthest along in the construction process, with finishes beginning to go up in all units. The 10 townhomes at 12th Avenue E and E Harrison Street have recently broken ground, with excavation completed and foundation work underway. The apartment building at 12th Avenue E and E John Street is preparing for its Design Review Recommendation meeting and working towards its construction permit. We expect construction to begin in late 2015.
Keep an eye out for this b9 triangle (and others!) in the coming months.
