Upstairs at Bethesda Row is a mixed use building capping the west end of the Bethesda Row block. The site was a former relocated, surface parked grocery store in a strip configuration. Torti Gallas created a new Festival Street, providing additional retail and residential frontage, a unique urban public space, and completion of the pedestrian loop experience of walking around the block. This dynamic and flexible internal street allows deliveries and vehicular drop off at controlled hours, as well the ability to be closed to vehicles, creating a unique and vibrant pedestrian and cafe space.
Architecturally, the building massing is articulated with a variety of facade themes, providing a pedestrian friendly scale to the building. The apartments over the retail comprise a variety of flats and lofts, with many desirable views and exposures.
