At the corner of Pearl and Water Streets, Alloy developed five contemporary four bedroom, three bath townhouses with private parking, a garden and a roof terrace. The townhouses feature 20’ parlor floor ceilings, fireplaces and sky lit rooms throughout. In addition, they are designed with energy efficient building systems and a high performance building envelope. All townhouses were sold in 2013 with occupancy occurring in 2015.
Acting as the architect, contractor, developer and broker for the project Alloy identified that the townhouse program was missing from the neighborhood. While a large condominium tower was an ‘as of right’ option, the team opted to pursue half the development potential. This critical decision lowered construction costs creating efficient townhouses for sale. Sited within the Landmark District, the team was sensitive to the industrial warehouse context which includes the City’s first reinforced concrete buildings. The facade is clad with tensile Ductal concrete panels, a contemporary concrete technology which compliments the tone and texture of the neighboring buildings and allows the concrete to be cast to delicate proportions. This economically viable combination created a contextually sensitive and beautiful addition to the built environment.
