About

Located in the heart of LoHi at the site of the former Dickinson Plaza, this project houses 106 residences. The architectural materiality is driven by the context of the neighborhood, with modular brick that transitions in hue from the corner to the ends in each direction. The extensive views of downtown from the upper levels inspired larger units with terraces that provide a true indoor-outdoor living experience.

Design

At the street level, the project enhances the fabric of the neighborhood with a series of smaller retail establishments and restaurant opportunities, along with a residential lobby. A large art mural at the leasing entry adds to the identity of the project as it nods to the original murals that once adorned the walls of Dickinson Plaza.

At the center of the project lies an internal courtyard, which opens to the north, creating a lively, light-filled outdoor living space for the residences. Fire pits, shade trellises, outdoor games and lounge spaces connect the space to an indoor clubroom on the second level. This social heart of the project is visible to the homes facing the courtyard, drawing residents out of their homes and creating a vibrant sense of community.
