The existing three-story historic building at 1424 Washington was renovated to preserve and maintain historic detail while providing for new use types. The basement level was re-planned for vehicular parking and a new ramp was incorporated in the southeast corner of the building to allow vehicular access to the this level. A hair salon occupies the first floor while the upper floors are reserved for residential use. Redesign of this space was necessary to provide proper access to new centralized stairs and an elevator.
The northern half of the second floor currently has an unoccupied residential unit of recent construction. This work was removed as necessary in order to accommodate the construction of four loft-style residential units on this floor. The third floor is renovated into two custom units with “pop-up” roof construction within each of the two units affording access to private decks on the roof.
