670 Union Street

Six-story residential condominium building constructed out of heavy timber and steel with post and beam construction and 7” GLT floor systems. According to the Real Estate Developer, the warmth of the wood and construction and exposed timber features has commanded a premium for the Condo units. The project has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the local community due to fewer workers and less traffic on site, as compared to traditional construction methods.
