Today we are going to take a full tour around One City Block. As of today, the two south buildings have topped out with the brick facades starting to go up and the two north buildings are nearing completion.
First, let’s start out with the north buildings that will face 19th Avenue between Logan and Pennsylvania Street. The facades are mostly complete on both the buildings and you can clearly see the two buildings are very different in every aspect. These two buildings will also have ground floor retail along 19th Avenue which will contribute to the already established 2-block retail corridor along this street. I bumped up the resolution and quality of these photos a little so you can get a better look at the detail of these buildings. Make sure you click to zoom in!
Heading up to 18th Avenue, here are the south buildings which are topped out. Once again you can clearly see that each building has its own unique shape. Because of the hill between 18th and 19th Avenue, these buildings only rise 4-stories to match the elevations of the north buildings.
The south buildings will also be almost entirely covered in brick! Here is a glimpse of what the brickwork will look like on the 18th and Logan building.
The 18th and Pennsylvania building will be the most unique out of the four when it comes to the brick pattern. Here’s a glimpse of that brickwork.
The Uptown neighborhood still has a lot of parking lots, especially in this area. However, One City Block is getting rid of one of the biggest and ugliest while continuing a nice street wall along both 18th and 19th Avenue.
One City Block is expected to be complete by early fall which means the next time we visit this will be for its final update!
