The Jackson

The Jackson is a modern addition to North Park that includes two levels of commercial space and thirty-one apartments. It features dramatic roof cantilevers that hover sixty feet in the sky, patinaed Corten steel panels, and a unique, Japanese Shou Sugi Ban siding. The interior design includes custom cabinetry, tile work accents and floor to ceiling views of North Park.

The design creates much-needed engagement with the street while also providing a serene central courtyard for tenants. The landscaped courtyard incorporates residential circulation and becomes a focal point for creating community among the tenants and a quiet respite from the busy street beyond. In a growing city, The Jackson is a model for architecture that engages the street, creates community, and provides outdoor connections within an urban context.
