The Nash Lofts project is making progress at the southeast corner of Broadway and Michigan Avenue. A group of investors, led by architect Steven J. Carmina and developer Roger Trettel, are redeveloping the 19th-century buildings that make up what’s called the Dellenbaugh block. They sit at the gateway to the Michigan Avenue African American Heritage Corridor.
The buildings at 163-167 Broadway and 64 Nash Street were built over time between the 1820s and 1880s and have been vacant for over 15 years.
The project will include 18 units of mixed income apartments, 16 one-bedroom units and two two-bedroom units. Each floorplan is unique with center-island kitchens, in-unit laundries, and exposed brick walls. Enclosed parking for 11 cars is being created. Three commercial spaces will also be available.
Carmina Wood Morris designed the redevelopment project. Ellicott Development will manage the property, its first third-party property management deal. The first units are expected to be online this fall.
