  • Located at 2213 14th St. NW, this is an urban infill project where Ellisdale was able to assist the owner in adding rentable square footage (for a final tally of 56 units) quickly and affordably. The original structure was a three-story office building with one level below grade for parking. Zoning allowed for up to five additional floors, so long as the final structure fits within building height restrictions for the area, the Uptown Arts-Mixed Use Overlay District. Speed was achieved by the CFS-framed exterior panels being fully sheathed. During their erection, crews were able to do water-proofing, install windows and achieve dry-in quickly.  Ellisdale topped out quickly. Typically it is a five to seven day cycle per floor with post-tension concrete. On this site Ellisdale was able to set panels in two days, decking over and pouring concrete in about a four-day cycle.  The owner of 2213 14th NW took occupancy in July 2020 and is happy with the results.
