Not every multifamily development opportunity in the area becomes aPodments. CHS recently noted a new, 5-unit apartment building developed on 22nd Ave E. The Julia Place Apartments are up for lease and CHS stopped by to pay the dense little building a visit.
Here’s how Elaine Nonneman described her project in a message to neighbors posted on the Miller Park Blog:
Long story short, I have built a 5-unit apartment building at 136 22nd Ave.E between John and Madison, and it is ready for occupancy. It’s called Julia Place Apartments, is mixed affordable, one unit fully accessible, and has 5-Star BuiltGreen certification. Sustainable features include solar power and heat, 5800 gal. rainwater tanks to supply toilets, laundries and irrigation, and all ‘green’ materials and design.
The four-story building is a nifty little feat of architectural design and relies on solar power and use of a rainwater catchment to keep utility costs low. Three of the units are relatively spacious 1-bedroom/1-bathroom apartments, each priced at 40-60% median income ($660-990). The remaining two units are two-bedroom/two-bathroom apartments, each at market price. The units features hardwood floors, big closets, and new appliances including dishwasher and washing machines/dryers.
