Design Advice has been offered to GBD Architects for a full block, 20 story mixed-use building at 140 SW Columbia St. The project for Texas-based developer Alamo Manhattan would include 306 residential units in the upper 16 floors and 12,205 sq ft of retail and 3 live/work units on the ground floor. Parking for 269 vehicles would be provided in a three story above grade parking podium structure. Exterior terraces are proposed at levels 5, 13 and 20. The building would reach a height of 200′, despite earlier indications that it could be as tall as 260′.
Construction is underway on the Ella, a 199 unit apartment building by Texas based developer Alamo Manhattan. The design of the project on South Waterfront Block 43 is by Texas based Hensley Lamkin Rachel Inc, with assistance from local architects SERA. An underground garage, accessed from SW Abernethy St, will provide parking for 196 vehicles. The building will have one retail space, a 1,470 sq ft unit at the corner of SW Moody Ave and SW Abernethy St. Ground floor amenity spaces for the residents have been designed so that they can potentially be converted to retail in the future.
