06/30/2008 - 19th Century Meets 21st at First and Washington

Lovers of the Terabyte Triangle’s “baked Alaska buildings” will be especially delighted with the Hanley’s development "First at Washington" -- located at 1st and Washington. A baked Alaska building is the inverse of the flaming dessert which is charmingly frozen in the middle yet piping hot on the outside. The “baked Alaska building” has a charming old historical exterior which belies the white hot connectivity available within. This perfectly describes the townhouse style units being built above the ground floor retail space occupied by Concept Home, Heather Hanley’s ‘softer side of contemporary’ furnishings that harmonize with the historic interior of the building.

The living units stretch between the second and third floors, and although much of the construction is new, the Hanleys have made the most of the buildings 1901 attributes. Many walls are of exposed brick, floors are hardwood or wood based – no concrete – ceilings are high, and woodwork and stair banisters creatively amalgamate the turn-of-the-century spindles and moldings used in the original building. Modern, but openable, skylights have replaced the buildings original skylights, and modern ecologically sound windows provide interesting urban views from each unit. All units are sprinklered and the building is virtually fireproof.

Along with the comfortable living spaces, the units are super high tech. Each unit has a minimum of two fiber connecting points, two quad shield RG-6 75 ohm “precision video cables", and two cat 6 copper connections. Some units have more. The fiber connects each unit to the building communications demarcation point. There are three control panel sites that connect to the unit’s master control panel for convenient control over any electronic device. Device options are numerous, and include HVAC control systems, central vacuum, lighting control, and security systems. The occupant might add custom home theater, television, telephone networking, whole house audio, iPod docks, and even gigabit speed Internet. Ports are available at various places in the unit so the occupant may arrange their furniture as they choose.

Four units are still available. Please contact James Hanley at 509) 535-1111 or 1-800-CPU-ACME.
