To develop Octavia Boulevard’s Parcel P, Build Inc. teamed with Avalon Bay Communities to adapt the master plan and create 182 apartments. Two large buildings bookend row-house parcels that step up the hill and enclose three midblock courts. We designed the mixed-use Octavia Building: 42 apartments above retail, with a tall portal entrance to the entire complex. The building’s units are organized into five discrete volumes, each topped with its own outdoor room.
