Sky House East Tour, Part Deux

 

I got a chance to tour Sky House East apartments at 1150 4th Street in Waterfront Station again last week. During my last visit in November, the common areas were still under construction, but now the building is complete and more than 90% leased. There are 213 market-rate units in the building (and 53 affordable dwelling units) and has the current distinction of being the tallest residential building in Southwest.  Both Sky House buildings were formerly the headquarters of the EPA and were clad in concrete before their transformation to residential was started by Urban-Atlantic and The JBG Companies. Now that both buildings have been re-skinned with glass and metal panels designed by Wiencek & Associates, any remnants of the old Waterside Mall are all but gone. 

Below are photos of some of the common areas at Sky House East.

Sky House West is the sister building to Sky House East and should start leasing soon. From what I heard, the rents in that building will be higher than the east building.

Surprised Sky House East is 90% leased. Would be interesting to know the percentage breakdown.of market-rate vs affordable units

West156th: I was wondering as well. I am a sky house resident and I pay full price($1855) for my 1 bedroom. I wonder the going affordable rate. I will say that when I applied back in early June, there was no mention of an affordable rate nor were the affordable units listed on the available apartment breakdown sheet. But then again, I didn’t ask because I do not meet the eligibility for the affordable rate.
