A unique residential project in the Standish-Ericcson neighborhood is set to soon be assembled. Yes, assembled. You read correctly.

Located at 4200 42nd Avenue E, the project, which will be named β€œMOD42”, will be constructed on what today is a vacant site at the intersection of 42nd Street E and 32nd Avenue S. The three-story building will be home to 30 apartment units once complete with all units within the building featuring one-bedroom layouts.

Rise Modular is the developer behind the project which will use a unique construction method.

Designed by DJR Architecture, the entire building will go up within a single week’s time span beginning next week. The building will be comprised of modular units that are prefabricated in a factory and set in place, almost like Legos. The modular components will be completely finished when it comes to the interior allowing for a significantly expedited construction schedule.

This unique construction method has already been deployed on the East and West coasts in markets where construction costs are extremely high and a shorter construction timeframe saves a significant amount of money. Rise Modular hopes to deploy this new construction method throughout the β€œuntapped” Midwest market in the years to come.

MOD42 is anticipated to be complete in late 2020.
