A face-lift is underway along Curtis Street.
California-based SteelWave and Miami-based Rialto Capital Management have begun tearing off the facade of the structure at the corner at 15th and Curtis streets, which dates to the 1960s.
SteelWave and Rialto purchased the 12-story building in January 2019 for $22.5 million and announced plans for major renovations a short time later.
The facade coming down will be replaced by a glass curtain wall. Other changes are set to include the addition of a robotic lift parking infrastructure and new mechanical systems, a lobby remodel and the installation of an amenity deck with fitness center and rooftop terrace.
The structure was formerly at 930 15th St., but it will debut with a new address, 1490 Curtis St.
Here are some photos of the project taken last week, as well as a rendering.
