42nd Street Condos

What once was a worn single-family home morphed into four stylish condos.

The vision of this condo project was to establish a whole new urban trend for the neighborhood. Using the footprint of an existing single-family home, the condos (or flats) were stacked on three levels rather than design to the standard narrow, claustrophobic townhouse model. The building was sited to maintain downtown and mountain views.
