A&P Role: 
General Contractor

Situated on a postage-stamped 13,000 sf mid-town site, seven stories of residential units rise above a two-story partially below-grade, post-tensioned concrete parking garage. In response to the close proximity of work opportunities and public transportation, the parking levels are limited to (70) vehicle parking spaces while providing (43) secure bike racks. Standard apartment amenities include tenant storage lockers, trash chute, trash compactor, smart-key access control, security cameras and emergency-responder system.

The Boxcar project consists of (145) tastefully appointed and highly efficient rental apartments with an unusual mix of (121) studios and (24) one-bedroom units, tailored by the building's enviable location and its anticipated tenant life style. Surface decorated, vinyl plank floors provide warm, low maintenance simulated wood flooring within the residential units. Acoustically efficient floor/ceiling and wall assemblies assure 24/7 tenant privacy. Full kitchens and stack washer/dryers occupy each unit.
