So View14, the long-awaited apartment building at the corner of 14th St. and Florida Ave., is finally open for leasing. The first move-ins will be occurring before the end of the month, according to developer David Franco of Level 2 Development. There are still construction workers bustling around throughout the building, but Franco insists the units will all be ready by mid December.

“My unit will be the last one under construction,” he says. (And with a terrific, spacious outdoor patio, it seems well worth the wait.)

At last weekend’s first open house, seven or eight units were claimed, according to Franco. Just 177 or so to go. Franco expects the building to lease up entirely within a year. There are  only seven affordable dwelling units since the developers made a $1 million donation to a nearby affordable housing building.
