Marketing for the new Viva Capitol Hill apartment building nearing the completion of construction at 12th and Union would beg to differ:
LONG LIVE THE HILL
VIVA is a brand new collection of exceptional apartment homes offering sleek modern interiors. Loft-style studios, one and two bedroom flats. VIVA—stylish sanctuaries available early 2014.
Outside, feel the energy of the Pike Pine corridor. Inside, experience the cool sophistication of the ultimate urban residence. Step out for a hand-crafted cocktail or some of the best coffee in the world. Be close, connected and current with nightclubs, restaurants, shops and recreation surrounding you in every direction. VIVA—exceptional apartment living on the hill.
Viva, you may remember, replaces the old Undre Arms Apartments and the paint store turned hookah bar that operated for a time on the property. Be close, connected and current…
In the meantime, Bauhaus will reopen soon, the Egyptian has attracted a horde of bidders seeking to reopen the theater space and the Comet, we’re told, has at least three new owners working with the building’s landlords to reopen the beloved dive and music venue. Maybe Viva developer Alliance Communities is on to something.
