A 2013 Mayor’s Design Award winner, North End Phase II includes 258,545 square feet of luxury apartments in two buildings. Building #2 – “Portrait” – consists of 55 residential units over two levels of parking. The upper level of parking contains a lobby, game room and 3,200 square feet of retail space. Building #3 – “Silhouette” – consists of 95 residential units. The upper level of parking contains a lobby plus an additional five residential units. Phase II has added 155 apartments between the two buildings. The residential levels are Type IIIA construction with cold formed steel stud exterior walls with a two-hour rating. The residential interior walls and floor framing are wood studs and wood I-Joists. The lower two levels are Type IA with precast concrete plank bearing on precast beams, precast columns and masonry walls at the exterior. These levels include 206 new single parking spaces with an additional 21 tandem spaces. The second level includes a green roof terrace that aligns with the existing project. Additional improvements include a private road, 400 feet of Riverwalk and “Denim Park”, a venue for live entertainment.
