Out with The Old and In with The New

Though you may appreciate the period details and twentieth century architectural styles found in the Old Northeast, it doesn’t mean that you necessarily want to live in it or renovate it. The good news for this type of buyer is that in 2006 the Old Northeast failed to receive the necessary votes from residents to approve the application for the local historic designation despite the overwhelming affirmative votes. This means that a prospective buyer has the ability to buy a lot, scrape it, and build a new home in the Old Northeast. There are many examples of new construction throughout the neighborhood consisting of Spanish Mediterranean, Santa Barbara Mission, and Contemporary with a nod to Mid Century Modern.

For the most part, the new construction projects mix and match well with the eclectic neighborhood architecture. Aspen Venture Group is one of the prolific developers in the Old Northeast with several projects in the neighborhood. Their attention to each unique project provides an authentic value and creates urban infill developments that stand apart from the rest. The Gables is one amazing project on 7th Avenue NE between 1st and 2nd streets. The original apartment building was purchased and the lot prepared to build three new Santa Barbara Mission style row homes. Each home has its own private swimming pool and central courtyard that creates a lush zen ambiance in the heart of the Old Northeast. The design focus is on interior light with abundant windows and thoroughly modern finishes. If you are looking to create your new oasis, a stroll down 7th avenue may be worth your time to see Aspen Venture Group’s work in progress.
