Initially, this property was nothing more than a large parking lot toward the edge of the City of Portsmouth. Many of the surrounding lots had been bought up and we’re experiencing exciting new developments. All of it would contribute to this new area of expansion known as the North End. This project would also be embarking on a city approval process under the newly adopted ‘Character-Based’ zoning.
Due to the size and shape of the lot, the design evolved to be a collection of smaller buildings. However the interior featured cohesive single floor plates with a mix of condo flats and townhomes. This would be a unique opportunity to conceive of the master plan view of an entire block.
