North18 has returned in front of the Design Commission, in the form of an 11 story bar tower. The building by YBA Architects previously received Design Advice in January of this year, at which time it consisted of a 6 story building with townhome units at the ground level. As now proposed the 119’-10” tall building would include 168 residential units above ground floor retail. Two levels of underground parking are planned, which allows the building to exceed the 75′ height limit that would otherwise exist on the site.
Construction has started on Riverscape Lot 8, a 250-unit apartment complex on the waterfront north of the Fremont Bridge. The project is comprised of two buildings above a parking garage with 200 vehicle spaces. The building closet to the river will be ‘C’ shaped in plan, with a courtyard facing the river. The other building is arranged as a bar facing onto NW Front Ave. The project design is by SERA Architects with Shapiro Didway landscape architects. The developer is Las Vegas based Fore Property Company, who are also behind the adjacent Waterline Apartments.
