City Center Lofts, Green Container Condos by Kalkin

City Center Lofts Rendering

I opened up the local newspaper today, and much to my surprise, there’s news that the first, mid-rise container building in the U.S. is planned for downtown Salt Lake City.  The project was designed by none other than Adam Kalkin, container architecture expert, and will be called City Center Lofts.  The green, ultra-modern condo building will have eight units and a ground level art gallery.

1111 East Pike, a Tom Kundig Urban Infill Project

1111eastpike

This is Tom Kundig’s first condo project, Eleven Eleven East Pike — a retail- residential use, urban infill structure in Seattle’s Pike/Pine neighborhood.  Details of the project are being released today, but I have some inside bits of information for sustainability enthusiasts.  In addition to being an urban infill project, Eleven Eleven East Pike will be Built Green 3-star certified and have a Walk Score of 98 (tops = 100).  Which means sustainability is integrated with the culture and soul of the neighborhood.  Owners will have an opportunity to use their cars less and stay active in the community. 

The work of Tom Kundig is highly respected and widely celebrated.  I see the same for Eleven Eleven East Pike, which will have five floors of residential (27 homes), ground level retail, and two floors of subsurface parking.

High Line 23 – Critically Acclaimed, Chasing LEED [S2]

High Line 23 - Neil M Denari Architects High Line 23 - Neil M Denari Architects

There’s a new green project under construction in New York’s West Chelsea Arts district that just so happens to be the first free-standing project for Neil M. Denari Architects.  Known as High Line 23, or HL23, the design is defined, at least in part, by the small ground floor footprint of 40′ x 99′.  As you can tell from the images, the building starts small and hovers 14 floors into the air over abandoned railroad tracks (note: those tracks will soon be a thriving green park area).  The $22 million, 39,200 sf condo tower will have a private garden at the building’s base and 11 condo homes — nine full floor residences and a duplex penthouse on the top floor.  Residences range in size from 1,850 – 3,600 sf and price from $2.7 – $10.5 million.
