Construction Watch: Apartments at the Hub

Add another project to the “underway” list.  Architect/Developer Jake Schneider has started work on the $13.5 million Apartments at the Hub project on Swan Street.  The historic buildings at 145 and 149 Swan will offer 10,000 sq.ft. of commercial space and 50 upscale apartments when completed next year.



145 Swan Street was built in 1908 for Witkop & Holmes, a grocery business that commissioned the 30,000 sq.ft. brick and frame structure. 149 Swan Street was designed by Lansing & Beierl, Architects and constructed in 1896 for Sibley & Holmwood Candy Company, a local confectioner that later partnered with several other businesses nationwide to form the National Candy Company.

The fifty new upscale, market-rate apartments will be a mix of one and two bedroom units ranging in size from 1,020 to 1,345 sq.ft.  The units will feature granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, solid core doors, hardwood flooring, whirlpool tubs and underground parking.  Tenants will have access to a rooftop garden deck with views of downtown.

Historic review and approval services are being provided by Preservation Studios.
