The Rockwell at Pine and Franklin
Rockwell came to us by the same team that brought us The Marlow and Vida, to name just two of their most recent projects. The Rockwell is the result of merging six existing lots and demolishing most of the existing buildings, although most of their historic facades have been preserved.
Rockwell offers in their place two 13-story towers with about 5,500 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor and one level of below-grade parking with spots for up to 245 vehicles and 141 bicycles.
As of 1/01/18 they only had a few homes left and sold extremely quick for a project of its size. After the Rockwell came to market, 1450 Franklin and the Austin which are both within walking distance launched and are doing extremely well too as this neighborhood continues to transition by the day,
