“A new apartment complex pitched by developer Hunters Capital and architecture firm Studio Meng Strazzara has cleared the final round of design review. In a recent meeting, the East Design Review Board voted to move 517 E Pike St., a 92-unit development, forward based on a number of design conditions meant to refine the character and architectural concept of the development.

The project site is currently developed with a commercial building that was originally constructed in 1910. The building, as well as much of the Pike/Pine neighborhood, is characterized by a strong commercial presence with brick storefronts and structures with an industrial flare. The area is evolving quickly; City documents also note that the neighborhood is seeing more development, particularly larger, multifamily structures that combine both historic and modern architecture.”
