Stone Way is a large commercially-oriented boulevard surrounded by older, single family neighborhoods. Recent developments have been slowly evolving the busy street into one with a more walkable, urban character. The Wally is one that joins this revitalization. Located mid way between the water and 45th Avenue, this thoughtfully designed 27 unit, boutique apartment building brings sympathetic proportions, scale and massing to the neighborhood.
Inside and out, the building is aimed at an urban, minimalist resident. Clean lines and generous glazing create a beautifully spare building with small retail spaces on the ground floor to activate Stone Way. Minimal parking is located behind the retail space on the ground floor, reflecting the nearby nexus of public transit options. All the units are flexible one bedrooms or open studios allowing residents to do a lot with a smaller space.
