For the past few years there has been talk about developing the property of The Nimmons Residence one of Calgary's historic houses. Located in Calgary's Bankview neighborhood, The Nimmons Residence is a 120 year old house that sits along side 14th street at 19th ave nestled in around low rise apartment buildings. A new proposal by Calgary's Brava Developments calls for the house to be moved to the opposite corner of the lot to make way for an 'L' shaped multi-family residential building.
Designed by Casola Koppe Architects , the residential building dubbed, Nimmons Court would be a 5 storey, 84 unit building that would flank The Nimmons Residence on the north and west sides, with the Nimmons Residence moved to the southeast corner of the property. The building is a modern styled design that juxtaposes the Queen Anne Revival styled Nimmons Residence.
With Nimmons Court in it's early stages, I will be sure to return to this project as progress continues.
