Decibel is a mixed-use, affordable workforce housing community with high end retail on the ground level and a roof deck and dog run at the top. Decibel is one of three projects Walsh has worked on for Spectrum Development. The three projects are named Anthem, Decibel, and Reverb in honor of Jimi Hendrix who once lived in the area.
Decibel consists of 75 units with a mix of studios, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom units with 17 underground garage spaces. Decibel has a roof top deck with a fire pit, dog run, dog wash station, and two barbecue grills complete with a prep station. Decibel offers 3,000 square feet of commercial space located on the ground floor along 12th Avenue. The commercial space sports 24 foot ceilings, which brings another element of uniqueness to the project. Twenty percent of the units at Decibel are affordable with the rents at 65%, 75% and 85% AMI for studios, 1-bedrooms and 2-bedrooms respectively. The project is targeted LEED Gold certification.
