Renderings Courtesy Of Studio V
This one has been on my plate for a while. It is the building at the intersection of Vernon Blvd. and Jackson Avenue. The structure is beginning to rise a few stories above ground, and I finally have renderings and info, courtesy of architect Studio V.
The building, by Times Square Construction, will rise 9 stories, which is one or two stories short of the original plan. The great news is that the building will not be shorter, rather the developer has chosen to go with 11'4" ceiling heights. Ahhh- this I like! It's name will be it address, "10-17 Jackson". It will contain approximately 33 units and ground floor retail which is being built with the potential for a restaurant in mind. The exterior will be a combination of floor to ceiling ribbon glass, stainless steel shingles, and perforated aluminum screens. The architect says that he is going to pains to blend in with the community.
The interiors will have dark walnut floors throughout and exposed concrete columns. Bathrooms will include natural stone floors, teak accents and "floating vanity". The kitchen cabinets will have white lacquer cabinets, natural stone floors, Liebherr fridge, and Jenn-Air appliances.
Ok, so far without seeing floor plans, I love everything about this new development with the exception of the Jenn-Air appliances. I guess that's easily fixed- it's not too late for the developer to read this and pick up some Viking, Bosch, or Miele fixins. Everything else sounds great. I think it's a great looking building that fits in (feel free to disagree, it's in the eye of the beholder), it's in a great location, should have some views, and those high ceilings- fantastic!
The start date for sales and marketing is undetermined.
