Just blocks from Piedmont Park, one of Midtown’s oldest residential towers is receiving a major update.
Exterior construction is nearing completion on the 1970s concrete housing block at the corner of 10th and Juniper streets. The facelift includes a new energy efficient facade system, covered terrace and outdoor patio, new community space and exam room, business center, fitness center, and new systems throughout the building.
Local architecture firm Surber Barber Choate + Hertlein has led the design of the upgrades.
The facade work, which started at the top of the tower, has made its way down to the third floor. Once the exterior work wraps, the 149 units will see work finish on major interior revamps too before residents can return.
When completed, the building will welcome back residents who called the building home before the renovation. Units are set aside for low-income seniors and those with disabilities.
Ultimately, 30 apartments will be for those who earn 50 percent of the area median household income, with the remaining units for residents earning 60 percent of the area median household income.
