The mixed-use development at the corner of Franklin and Hayes has been dubbed LindenHayes and apparently the residential address will be 233 Franklin (versus 231). Hopefully not to be confused with Linden Hayes Fine Art at 1925 Hayes.
The lobby, accentuated with wood-paneled walls, is highlighted with decorative panels by Lumicor. The distinctive exterior is a composition of materials including brick, fiber cement rainscreen panels, metal and glass. The courtyard was created by Marta Fry Landscape Architects and features a unique design of paving and planter walls to provide a serene setting of trees and plantings complementing the quality architecture of LindenHayes.
The living areas of the units have hardwood floors in Brazilian cherry or European white oak, by Berg and Berg. Generous bathrooms feature expansive custom tile finishes and frameless glass enclosures. All the residences include washer/dryer (gas) hookups. Exterior doors and windows are custom-built metal-framed systems with insulated glass by Bonelli, and feature floor-to-ceiling windows in main living areas.
In the kitchens: Studio Becker cabinets, Bertazzoni stoves, Fisher Paykel refrigerators, Bosch dishwashers and microwaves/vented hoods. One car parking per unit, air conditioning, and occupancy as early as February, 2010. Floor plans online.
And confirming our previously reported scoop, “The very popular Grove [Café] is planned to be located at the Hayes and Franklin corner.”
