The project consisted of constructing new apartments on the second and third floors of an existing mixed-use building. The first floor is occupied by multiple retail stores. The program required each bedroom to have its own bathroom while sharing a common living room, kitchen and laundry facilities. Two accessible apartments were added at the rear of the first floor.
The existing open stair between the second and third floors was enclosed while a new exit stair was constructed to provide a second means of egress from the upper levels.
