The two-building development by CSM Development Corp. is located in North Loop district of downtown rail yards. CSM built a 146-room extended-stay hotel along with 40 units of affordable rental housing, as well as 108 underground public parking spaces with some surface parking. The apartment building serves two income levels: Of the 40 units, eight are affordable to those at 50 percent median income and the remaining 32 units are affordable to those at or above 80 percent of median income. Eight one-bedroom units are affordable and 32 units are market-rate. CSM Corporation has designed the two four-story buildings, built atop the parking facility, to fit with the architecture of the neighborhood.
