Permits have been issued for a two-story residential building at 1657 N Mayfield Avenue in the North Austin sub-neighborhood of Austin. The owner, listed under GT Alternatives LLC, is planning two units for the building, as well as front stairs, a rear porch, and a detached two-car garage.
The architect of record is listed under Stern Group Architects LLC. A Redfin listing shows a near-complete structure with a mixed-material facade, containing dark brick and a separate dark gray siding on its exterior walls, as well as lighter-color finishes near the windows. From the photos, the building also appears to have a hip and valley roof, unlike the flat-roofed masonry buildings in the vicinity. The front porch described in the permits is shown to be entirely wooden from the photos, included alongside a small front lawn.
The lot lies near Route 91, a three-minute walk west to Austin & Wabansia bus stop. Route 72’s North Ave & Mayfield stop is also a three-minute walk southwest, while Route 85’s Central & Bloomingdale stop can be found via a nine-minute walk to the northeast. The nearest CTA L access for the Green Line is a 36-minute walk south to Austin station.
Permits were also issued this past June to remove the previously occupying two-story masonry building. For the new construction, the general contractor is listed as Pezzutti Construction, LLC DBA. Redfin’s listed showed 2021 as the final completion date for the $275,000 project.
