A historic bungalow complex downtown is getting interior renovations to become rental units.
The eight units at Brady Court, 40 E. 14th St., were built in 1915.
Owner Marcel Dabdoub bought the property in 2016 and recently started renovations with $400,000 in tenant-improvement permits.
“I think it has a lot of potential as apartments,” he said. “I like the layout and the fact that they each have porches and a central courtyard.”
Brady Court is a registered historic zone, so keeping the exteriors the same is required, said Bill Mackey, of Worker Inc. Architecture, who is working on the property.
“They’re pretty precious,” he said, “and we want to preserve what’s there.”
The kitchens are getting completely redone and windows will be upgraded.
The bungalows range in size from 619 to 825 square feet and will be market-rate rentals. A price point has not been established.
The units have been vacant since last summer, and Dabdoub hopes to have them ready for renters by the end of the year.
