Deconstruction and Development on NE 91st

Exterior work is wrapping up on a pair of connected homes at 380 NE 91st Avenue and 384 NE 91st Avenue. Demolition crews are actively deconstructing the 1925-era single-family residence next door at 400 NE 91st Avenue. The developer of these related projects, FX Homes, will replace that structure with two single-story townhouses.

This multi-residence development sits across the street from Columbia Christian School and is adjacent to the educational institution’s accessory parking lot. Each dwelling under construction shares a fifteen-foot common wall, forming an “H” shaped duplex. The homes are on individual lots and can sell separately. Each 998-square-foot house has a covered front porch. The entryway leads into a living room with a gas fireplace. The “C” shaped kitchen sits behind that, with a dining nook in the portion of the home that pushes towards the neighboring connected house. A hallway leads past a pantry and laundry closet to the back of the home. The middle of the building has a ten-by-eleven-foot bedroom and a full bathroom. At the back of the houses, designers created the “Owners Suite” with an attached 3/4 bathroom.

Interior work on the buildings under construction should conclude in the next few months, with the homes hitting the market sometime this year. After workers remove the nearly 100-year-old house, crews will begin working on the next townhouses. When completed, four new residences will have replaced a single-family dwelling while blending into the scale of the neighborhood.
