65 Washington Street               

Salem, MA

The proposed building at 65 Washington Street is a hybrid “platform” building using fire treated wood framing above a steel and concrete podium. The base of the building has been designed to be a contemporary interpretation of urban storefront design, with stone and steel column covers, fretwork, planter boxes, and awnings. The overall building is designed to adhere to the current historic patterns of Washington Street with a retail ground floor and residential above, using a combination of traditional brick and metal panels, with stone details.

The first floor will contain 3000 sf of commercial space, as well as the lobby for the condominium and some enclosed garage space. The second floor of the building contains residential dwelling units and shared amenity space. The remaining floors are purely residential, and there are 61 dwelling units total, including 6 affordable units. The only basement area proposed is the existing lower level of the district court building which will be used for additional parking.
