DJC Story on Belmont Street Project

by

The Daily Journal of Commerce recently published a story on the project at SE 26th & Belmont:

The space between 26th and 27th avenues on Southeast Belmont Street is presently a level lot, but work is planned on a four-story, H-shaped building; the ground floor of the 13,000-square-foot structure will be dedicated to commercial space while the top three floors will hold apartments.

“We could have built a regular, everyday block building, but residents would have ended up looking out at future building walls next door,” said Eric Hoffman, co-founder of SUM Design Studio and lead architect for the project.

The team instead split a normal block building in half and pushed it out to the property line.
