Duplexes Coming Soon Near 16th & Ogden

Recent years have meant big changes around the intersection of 16th & Ogden, and there are even more in store. The most easily recognizable changes are on the east side of 16th Street, where several four-story buildings arrived on the scene a couple years ago. These buildings are part of the Vineyards at 16 project and should eventually be joined by two more buildings, assuming the developers are able to wrest the lots from City agencies. The original rendering included those infill lots, so we'll remain cautiously optimistic that they'll get filled eventually.

Across the street, we've been encouraged as some duplexes have arrived on the 1600 block of Ogden Street but the lots on 16th Street lots have remained conspicuously vacant. Last week, the owner of 834 N. 16th St. reached out to us, letting us know that they're planning a duplex for the property. We took a peek at the L&I Map and noticed that at least two other developers have the same idea for vacant lots on this block. The folks building at 834 N. 16th St. were kind enough to share a rendering from KCA Design Associates. It looks like the building will complement the newer buildings across the street.

Of course a bunch of new residents is great news for Vineyards Cafe, which opened last year on the southeast corner of 16th & Ogden.

Looking at the pictures of their crepes online, it's also probably a good thing that there's a crossfit gym around the corner on Parrish Street
