On Tuesday evening, May 22, members of the Wedgwood Community Council were given a “hardhat tour” of the new Jasper Apartments at 8606 35th Ave NE. A “hardhat tour” means that we wore hardhats and orange reflective vests while going through the building. We saw apartments in various stages of completion as well as the amenities of the Jasper such as an interior courtyard, rooftop garden, and entry which will have seating areas for small-group gatherings.
Nic Nobili, Assistant Manager, pictured at left (blue shirt) showed us the great variety of floorplans available at the Jasper, with apartment sizes ranging from studio to two-bedroom. There are also live/work units on the ground floor which can function as storefronts or professional offices. Photos of the Jasper’s interior, floor plans and pricing can be found at the website: http://www.jasperbyalta.com/

As the Jasper Apartment project continues toward completion, the WCC will continue to interact and work with the Jasper on issues of how the building will impact life in Wedgwood. When completed the Jasper will have on-site management and maintenance. Presently 20 of the 91 apartment units are rented with many future residents eager to move in on or near the target completion date of July 10th. The Jasper is working to minimize traffic and crowding by limiting move-ins to three per day, to be finished by 6 PM daily.
