Hubbell Realty Co. has started construction on a $29 million apartment project called Level, located in the Bridge District in the East Village.

The company had taken out a building permit for the project, which will include 114 apartment units, in February.

Level is the third and final rental apartment project in the Hubbell development. The building will include one-, two- and three-bedroom units, an indoor and outdoor gym, a heated parking garage, kayak storage and patio spaces.

"Given this is our final apartment community within Bridge District, Level will definitely be a focal point in the neighborhood," Kris Saddoris, vice president of multifamily development for Hubbell, said in a prepared statement. "We’re looking forward to adding additional walkable, connected living opportunities to downtown."

The Bridge District, begun in 2015 by Hubbell, includes apartment buildings and townhouses. When completed, the development is expected to be valued at nearly $112 million and include about 1,000 people living in 477 home sites

Construction of Level is expected to be completed in spring 2023.
