The property is owned by JSM Venture Inc, who plans ground-level retail and 72 apartments above. Seven of the units will be affordable under the city’s Affordable Requirements Ordinance. The developer had received approval by the City Council in July of 2019 for the project, with full permits issued this past January under the address of 3121 N Broadway.

Hirsch MPG is behind the design, which retains the Art Deco style of the original 1928 facade. The first two floors will now be clad in stone, while the four above levels will refurbish the concrete exterior walls. The existing top cornice and decorative spandrels will also be retained. While two new levels are being added, only the top level will require a new street-facing facade, due to the height of the parapet of the original garage. This final seventh story will bring the roof height of the building to just under 74 feet, and be clad in a light gray cement board.

  1. Fantastic project. Now let’s redevelop the building next door.

  2. I’m not sure what this means: “Points of interest in the area include a collection of commercial options along Broadway.”

      Hi Terry, this was in reference to nearby retail and dining, but agree that the wording there was a little vague. We have updated accordingly

  3. This is going to be such a massive improvement to that building. I am so glad it’s getting the love it needed

  4. Will these be rental or condo? Thanks.
