The Olive is a 5-story mixed-use project consisting of 16 residential units and 1 ground floor commercial space. Located on a long and narrow “split zone” lot, half the building must conform to one set of zoning requirements (heights, setbacks, etc.), while the other half conforms to a different set of requirements. Capitalizing on these challenges allowed the team to conceive of a design that allows each residential unit ample private outdoor space and floor-to-ceiling windows, providing natural light, ventilation, and views. Constructed of cast-in-place concrete, exposed steel and stucco, the Olive is scheduled for completion in mid 2018.
