With new apartment projects under construction across the Hill, CHS has noted the increasingly creative names used to market the projects. A new one we’ve gotten wind of seems to be more over the top than most. Come spring 2014, you’ll have the opportunity to live inside Capitol Hill’s new Gatsby Apartments:
The’s a feeling of belonging at Gatsby where homes are classically styled, yet contemporary with the kind of finishes selected for their good looks today, and their enduring comfort for tomorrow.
There’s no telling whether the 1925 novel or the 2013 movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio was the inspiration behind the naming of the 10th Ave E project but we’re curious to see how the themes of American idealism and excess play out in the new 64,000 square foot, 76-unit, three-level wood frame over concrete building with 87 parking stalls — and a formal fountain plaza deck. No rents are listed yet for the one and two-bedroom units in the project on the edge of the tony Harvard-Belmont historical district.
At least it’s more interesting than the also coming-soon Three20 Apartments at, you guessed it, 320 E Pine.
