New Small Condo Construction on 8th Street NW

Update 6/14/2013: Photographs

Building continues, and the rising. Just a few photographs of the progress......
Rear View does not feel like a small width building
Side View - not sure if windows will be cut?

Front View - already above neighboring property

Apparently a 4 Unit Condo has begun construction at 1306 8th Street NW. between N and O Streets NW. I have not been able to find much information on this project, in fact, the best I have been able to find, dates back to 2009 (ref: HRPB Minutes for February 2009) and an article from The InTowner (also February 2009)  I will keep researching, and update accordingly.
Very slim width, but also very deep
The building space is very similar to the recently approved 1505 9th Street NW (which has a 14 ft property width) which is also preparing to build a 4 Unit Condo. It appears that they have the correct building permit, so there must be info out there somewhere (if you know more about this please contact us)
Posted Building Permit appears in order
Personally, I hope this is not the beginning of a trend of stuffing multi-unit condos & apartments into tiny spaces.

Update 6/14/2013:
Work progresses with the framing of the sub level

No idea why the entrance to the site is tree/shrub covered. The workers pulled the fencing down to gain access - strange!
Update 06/20/2013. Seems that the building process is full steam ahead! Starting to get a feel for size and layout.

What a difference a week makes - lower floor - in!

The bulk of what you see will be below street level
Update 4/8/2013
Floor installed, work progressing upward

  3. I absolutely love the outdoor patio area on this home.
    I think when you live in a beautiful place like that or Coeur d’Alene where I’m from it’s really important your real estate has opportunities for you
    to enjoy the outdoors! Great listing!
