Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, guests will enjoy tours of the striking residences as well as holiday-themed coffee and treat pairings with live music provided by Gable Music Ventures at Starbucks on Market located at 627 Market Street.
The brand-new apartments consisting of 13 one-bedrooms and 2 studios makes the new unit total for the MKT community and Market Street Village which spans up and down Market Street from the 400 to 800 blocks to 238 apartments. With quartz countertops, rich brown cabinetry, subway tile lined showers and charming views of Market Street below, the community features an upscale loft-feel.
The ribbon cutting not only celebrates the new apartments, but also the resurrection of the original Queen Anne style building façade dating back to 1895. With only photographs as historical building data, The BPGS Construction team worked diligently to restore the building to its former glory complete with a standing seam metal roof and 13-foot copper finial.
