When we checked in last with the mixed-use, mixed-income apartment building on the corner of Shelby Street and Broadway, the scaffolding was up and brick was being applied. The scaffolding has since come down and we stopped back to check out the fully bricked facade. And there it is. The architecture on the Shelby Street Apartments is simple vernacular but we think it fits right in with the architectural heritage of the city.
We especially like the cast concrete columns and lintels on the ground retail floor that mimic the limestone of many other old buildings in town. The building has 22 one and two bedroom units. And to think, the entire project only cost $3.5 million.

The project cost only $3.5 million, because the city paid only $1 dollar for the land.
I live a couple blocks from there. I’d like to snap up some property in the area for a buck! “Mixed income apartments” scare me. I’m hoping these don’t turn into projects, we have enough of those in Smoketown already….
