A 2009 construction accident caused work on 701 Union Street to stall until 2013, when new architect Jeffrey McKean took over, filing permits for a six-story, nine-unit building that was to feature "apartments ranging from studio lofts to large two bedroom penthouses" and "[set] a brick volume back from a projected wood plane [allowing] each unit to have balcony space."
Today, however, Brownstoner notes that the permits for the building have since been revised and that the building is now going to be five stories tall, still with nine units. It has also topped out. Since the description on the architect's website hasn't changed, and still describes the building as six stories, it's unclear whether or not anything else about the design has been modified. There do appear to be balconies, though.
