Leasing Begins at Eckhardt Lofts

Cedarland Development is accepting applications for the affordable apartments at 950 Broadway’s Eckhardt Lofts. The building, opening in coming weeks, features 28 affordable housing units, a Head Start daycare center run by the Community Action Organization, plus additional retail and commercial space. An indoor urban garden is planned for the building’s basement. The building had been unused for 18 years, with portions of the building being vacant for decades prior.

The studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units feature modern amenities, including stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. A building includes a shared laundry and gated parking.

The Art Moderne building was designed by architects Bley and Lyman and built in 1940 as a department store. The building has a streamlined aesthetic that combines strip windows, a rounded corner, and extensive glazing on the exterior with an open-floor plan, mushroom columns, and plaster details on the interior. From 1940 until 1957, the building operated as a department store. By the late 1950’s until the 1990’s, it served as office space for the State Department of Labor.
