Jackson Apartments

This large multi-family development was built upon a vision to create an eclectic and vibrant community that would be a reflection of the past, present and future of the Central District neighborhood. The project realizes the community’s desire for the site to “breathe green” with its extensive network of open spaces and lushly planted midblock pedestrian corridor that features opportunities for public art and play.

ABOUT the project

Located in the Central District, Jackson Apartments is a 532-unit multifamily project set within a neighborhood context, featuring extensive open space, a ground level grocer and unique micro retail opportunities. The street level includes a 12,000-square-foot public plaza—a flexible space that can accommodate small gatherings to neighborhood-wide celebrations. Connecting the neighborhood to the commercial corridor, a 60-foot-wide mid-block pedestrian promenade is lushly planted with a rich plant palette to encourage pollinators, raingardens to collect stormwater and amenities such as playful seating and public art. Additionally the site includes a series of terraces and courtyards featuring residential amenities such as comfortable seating, fire pits, kitchen and BBQ grills, and a dog/pet station.
