Via the fantastic hugeasscity blog, architects have released the first renderings for the new development on the northwest corner of 23rd & Main. Permits filed earlier in the year describe a 4 story building with 13 apartments and a basement parking garage.
Architects say that the new building will be 60% more efficient than a traditional building of similar size, using various technologies to capture waste heat from plumbing and exhaust ducts and even adding solar arrays to the roof.
The old single family house (at some point converted to an office) will be demolished.
And another big project is planned across 23rd from there, where Catholic Family Services is planning a 4 story, 13 unit apartment building, it’s now grown to 51 residential units and 2,300 square feet of ground floor retail space.
