The Schuster Group has scooped up land on the corner of First and Vine, and is planning a 132 unit 12 story apartment complex, with 75 underground parking stalls. Walton Lofts will be right across the street from the Millionaire’s Club, Bang Bang Cafe, and a hop skip and a jump to the Belltown Cottage Park (which played a role in the building’s design process) and Rudy’s Barber Shop.
The land is currently a parking lot at the corner of Vine Street, and VIA Architecture and Shoesmith Architects are the building designers. Vine street has been designated a “green street” along with 16 others around town, non arterial roads that are designated to providing pedestrian gathering spaces, and more trees and landscaping than other city blocks. Walton Lofts is planning to have trees and shrubs on site, and wider sidewalks along Western to create more hang out areas. For more information on the project, visit the Daily Journal of Commerce.
