The plans to replace the KFC with an 86-unit apartment building are taking shape, with several design ideas proposed for the site at 1140 NW Market St.
The five-story building, to be named Lagom Living, would contain 86 small efficiency dwelling units, and is being designed by Blueprint Capital. Blueprint says the name Lagom (pronounced la-gohm) is Swedish, and “describes the positive feeling of having the bare minimum. Live like it’s ‘just enough’ – not too much, not too little. Something being ‘just right.'”
Blueprint put out a survey earlier this year to gauge community feedback; now they have three potential designs being considered for the project (to view click here, go to Attachments, and download the Design Review EDG Proposal – Draft.pdf).
