35 Units 

Blake and Pine is a 35 unit apartment building in Lewiston’s tree street neighborhood that offers a mix of market rate and workforce housing units. Scheduled to begin construction in 2020, the 4-story building houses 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 will be in keeping with the height of other buildings and draws upon adjacent historic properties to help with material selection and fenestration detail. Financing is from multiple sources including Maine Housing, the City of Lewiston, and a number of private funding sources.
