Plans to redevelop the former Loew’s Theatre Company warehouse at 510 Washington Street are moving forward. Construction manager R&P Oak Hill is seeking subcontractors for the project with bids due August 13.
Amy Judd’s Alexandre Apartments LLC purchased the property in May 2014 for $340,000. The seven-story building was constructed in 1920 and designed by notable architect Thomas Lamb. Under plans prepared by Clinton Brown Company Architecture, an eighth floor is proposed bringing the building size up to 37,728 sq.ft.
Thirteen apartments are proposed plus a ground floor commercial space. Floors two through seven will each contain a one-bedroom, one and half bath unit and a two-bedroom, two bath unit. West facing one-bedroom units on the fourth through seventh floors will have covered balconies (plans below, left).
A 1,432 sq.ft. penthouse will have two-bedrooms, two and a half baths, den area, and a wrap-around roof deck (above right).
Basement storage is planned along with a street bump-out in front of the building to provide for a larger sidewalk.
The 500 block of Main Street and surrounding blocks have seen a wave of reuse projects in the last five or so years including new apartments, restaurants, commercial space, and even owner-occupied residences.
