Walker Terrace was built by Nathan Szanton and Robert C.S. Monks, the developers behind Casco Terrace on State Street in Portland. When completed in early Fall 2006, Walker Terrace instantly became one of the most appealing rental choices in Portland. Located at the corner of Walker and Congress Streets in Portland's historic and charming West End, the building is a 5-minute walk to Portland's Arts District and a 10-minute walk to its Old Port shopping and restaurant district, and the Downtown office and financial district. It's also within an easy walk to the University of Southern Maine; Portland's premier park, Deering Oaks; two hospitals; the Ice Arena; and Portland's baseball and football stadiums.
Situated at the top of Bramhall Hill, Walker Terrace affords stunning views of Back Cove, Deering Oaks Park and the Western Promenade. It contains twenty 1-bedroom and twenty 2-bedroom apartments with all of the 2-bedroom units featuring a second full bathroom. Two of the 2-bedroom and seven of the 1-bedroom apartments are loft-style with sleeping areas above overlooking the living/dining area, and outdoor decks overlooking the city.
Walker Terrace's brick exterior, bay windows and copper roof tastefully complement the beautiful historic architecture around it. Each unit has its own off-street parking spot included in the rent, many of which are under the building and out of the weather. Each floor of the building has its own fully equipped laundry room. Walker Terrace is the first project in Maine designed to Maine State Housing Authority's Green Building Standards.
