Solea was designed by Sorg Associates and developed Jair Lynch Development Partners. It features 59 condos with 52 residential and seven live/work units and 20% classified as affordable. This 65,000 SF project also include three street-level retail condos.
Solea units feature hardwood floors, stainless appliances, granite countertops and washer/dryers. Over-sized seven foot windows create panoramic views from Solea living space. Solea units have a spacious feel with a minimum ceiling height of ten feet.
