Old Beach Apartments (OBA) is the reimaging of a previously developed site. OBA, a modern, upscale, connected apartment community is located on an expansive waterfront site adjacent to the Laskin Road Gateway entry. The apartment complex will support the area’s goal of transforming into an “exciting people-gathering place”. OBA is surrounded by local dining, shopping, and gathering locations nearby, with a intentional pedestrian and tenant oriented design. VIA’s challenge and opportunity was to create a vibrant, connected community that supports movement and transparency through the development while maintaining the same previously approved building footprints. VIA achieved this by utilizing brightly colored branding for each building, balconies that expand as you travel higher in each building, transparent stair towers, expansive and inviting streetscape landscaping, a sky-bridge across Baltic Avenue, an elevated lounge with expansive views of the beautiful wetlands area, and a garage rooftop pool and lounge area with panoramic views of the oceanfront.
