The Avenue Apartments, located in Braddock, PA., include 50 one-bedroom and 3 two-bedroom units. All are adaptable. Each residential unit is equipped with mini-blind window treatments, wall-to-wall carpeted living areas, energy efficient appliances, individually controlled heat and air conditioning plus digital availability for telephone, cable, satellite and computer.
Because the building serves an elderly population, each unit is equipped with a Personal Emergency Rescue System (PERS) providing communication to and access by emergency medical responders.
Common spaces includes a very upscale community area with ceramic floors and two-story open area, resident lounges scattered throughout the building, a laundry area and tenant storage space. There is elevator service to all floors and a secure entry access system. Asecureparkinggaragealsoservesasaconvenientdrop off area that is protected from the weather.
Poor soil conditions required deep foundations. Mistick worked with the soils engineer and determined Controlled Modulus Columns (CMC’s) to be the most cost effective foundation system.
The below grade garage is masonry bearing with a precast deck. The 4-story apartment building above the garage is a wood frame structure. Exterior finishes include a mix of masonry veneer, composite aluminum and corrugated metal panels, and composite wood and polymer siding.
