Last Wednesday I had a schedule conflict and missed the design review for the new Live/Work project at 26th & Cherry. But now the designs have been released online (warning: 24 MB file) and we can all get a preview of what’s planned to take over that corner.
There’s a total of 11 units, with 8 live/work spaces and 3 townhouses. Parking is provided from rear-facing garages that all connect to the mid-block alley from Cherry street. Like most live/work spaces, they have first floor commercial or office space with small residences above. The units average 1,835 square feet each.
I think the commercial space in existing live/work developments is typically used for small offices. It would be nice if the stretch here along Cherry could see more retail storefronts to help build that little business district. It’ll be interesting to see how that shakes out if this project is constructed as planned.
Did you make it to the design review for this? If so, tell us what else you learned in the comments below.
