Green Condo Building in Columbia Street Waterfront Rises to Six Stories

Construction is chugging along at 255 Columbia Street, a Passive House boutique condo development with 13 units in the Columbia Street Waterfront neighborhood. Six of the building’s planned seven stories have risen so far, and alteration permits indicate the finished product will be 19,700 square feet.

HPI Development began marketing four of the units in October, and prices will range from $900,000 to $2,000,000. Designed by Loadingdock5, the super-insulated building will feature triple-paned windows and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery.

Each condo has its own balcony. High-end details include 4-inch-wide American walnut flooring, honed white Carrara marble mosaic tile floors and Calacatta marble counters in the master baths.

  • This building began with several construction mishaps, including 2 water main breaks that flooded neighboring buildings. Things seem to have quieted down and work proceeding without much drama. This is actually a pretty nice design. The patios at street level are a little odd, I don’t know anyone who would like that; surprised it has no retail.
