475 NE 74th Ave is soon to be the newest apartment building in Montavilla. The 3 Story, twelve (12) unit apartment building is directly behind the Candlelight Restaurant and Lounge, and across from the former Trinity Broadcasting Network building.
It is outwardly understated in appearance but will feature a unique entryway. On the right side of the entrance alcove will be a sing door that leads to a long hallway, zigzagging back, providing access to the apartments. Just off the front portion of the hallway is the stairwell that runs up the Northeast corner of the building. If this was the extent of the entryway it would seem a bit constrained, although adequate. However to the left of the entry door is large glass windows that will show off a Display Wall, set two and half feet back from the window. This feature is more common in retail spaces and is interesting to see in an apartment building this size. There is not room enough for a lobby so it gives a grand entrance look without the loss of space.
On the first floor, Unit 1, is a modest one bedroom apartment. Unit 2 however has a dedicated den and storage room, in addition to its one bedroom. Units 3 and 4 are two bedroom units of similar size. The remaining space on the first floor is occupied by an indoor trash room.
Floors two and three share a similar layout as the first floor. However, without a trash room taking up space, the back two units are slightly larger. Each unit has its own washer and dryer stack and one full sized bathroom. This apartment building offers a variety of layouts and should attract a range of tenants to the area.
The property is owned Afoofoo 2 LLC, but unlike some developments, Afoofoo is not the likely name for this building. It seems to be the name used by the developer for many projects and the property could be sold once completed.
