The Gypsy bar and restaurant on the corner of NW 21st and Irving closed in 2014, and as of this week the building is officially being torn down to make room for a new 4-story, 57-unit apartment building. In addition to the residential space, there will be 10,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground level and a 62-space underground parking garage.
Here is a look at the demolition, as seen on my walk to coffee recently:
Now it’s just a huge hole in the ground.
And here are the mockups of the new building
It fits in the neighborhood beautifully, though it’s going to put a dent into my commute through the winter!
