40,000 SF / 35 Units
Platz Associates designed this 35 unit apartment building in Lewiston’s tree street neighborhood. The 4-story building offers a mix of market rate and workforce housing units. Parking tucked under the building on the lowest level with the 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments on floors 2 through 4. Amenities include a community room, bicycle storage room and on-site laundry. Neighborhood stakeholders including the City of Lewiston staff, residents, and Maine Historic Preservation Commission were consulted with during early design to ensure the building fits in with its context and draws upon the best aspects of the neighborhood. Keeping the scale of the neighborhood buildings and materials in mind, the new structure relates to the scale of other buildings and draws upon adjacent historic properties to help with material selection and fenestration detail. Financing was from multiple sources included Maine Housing, the City of Lewiston, and a number of private funding sources.
