New Mixed Use Building May Squeeze Onto Upper King Street

Recognizing the importance and benefits of weaving affordable residential housing into the evolving urban landscape, a proposal to the Board of Architectural Review would have a mixed use building squeeze into the vacant lot at 725 King Street.

With less than 33 street-facing feet to work with, the proposed building has an efficient design to accommodate both commercial and residential use in a long, narrow structure. On the first level would be 1,835 square feet of office space with an active streetfront entrance – an exterior entry stairway and elevator would lend access to the second level with not only additional office space, but also two separate studio apartments.

A recent proposal from the project’s Neil Stevenson Architects also calls for a third level of more office space with a street-facing rooftop outdoor patio, a perfect spot to overlook the upper King Street block that includes Little Jack’s Tavern, Melfi’s, Leon’s Oyster Shop and the most recent addition, Maison.
