Let’s head on over to Uptown to check in on One City Block. We last looked at this development in February and a lot has changed since then. As of right now, two of the four buildings have topped out and the framing has begun on the other two.
First we’ll take a look at the topped out structures. The two buildings are very different in design. They have different roof-lines and different ways of wrapping around the block. This is a great feature, making each building unique even though they are part of the same development. Also, each building is separate and not connected in any way at street level which will also be true for the other two buildings under construction. It’s as if there are four smaller projects going on all at once!
Framing has begun to go vertical for the other two buildings. These will be five story structures just like the other two and will also have their own unique design.
The facade can always make or break the look of a building and in this case, these buildings will look sharp from what we see so far. Look at all that brick!
I love seeing sites like this under construction and seeing what a positive impact a development can have on a neighborhood. One City Block is doing everything right; separate smaller buildings with each one a unique design, scaled to what’s around in the neighborhood, providing ground floor retail, and taking away an entire city block of parking! I am very excited to see this finish!
