Even an older Capitol Hill apartment building, like the Oriana at 416 Summit Ave. E., can present new infill opportunities.
The plan is to replace a six-car garage on the alley east of the Oriana with a separate, new six-story building containing 19 units. The address of the new project is 414 Summit.
Local investors led by Petrie Capital purchased the Oriana in 2015 for almost $2.7 million. It was built in 1928, and has 11 units in three stories.
The midblock property, between East Harrison and East Republican streets, measures 7,200 square feet.
The addition is being designed by b9 Architects. The footprint of the addition will be only about 1,400 square feet, with a total project size of 9,224 square feet. Two stairwells are planned in the building, but no elevator.
Ten small efficiency dwelling units (or SEDUs) are planned, plus nine larger studios. Sizes will range from about 245 to 400 square feet. Most floors will have three units, and there will be units in the basement level. A bike room for 19 bicycles is planned.
Tenants will enter the new building from both Summit and the alley.
The project is currently going through administrative design review.
The team also includes Malsam Tsang, structural engineer; PanGeo, geotechnical engineer; and Root of Design, landscape architect. No general contractor is listed.
