Nestled in the Blue Dome District, the Jacobs Lofts on First are a collection of 28 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartment units that offer urban aesthetics for those seeking downtown apartment dwelling. 

Just need a bit of a getaway? Some of the building’s units are available on Airbnb and offer a glimpse into downtown living for those coming from near and far.

Ross Group began working on this project at 310 E. First St. in 2016 after several iterations stagnated. Designers leaned into the industrial touches like exposed brick and ducts, and added modern touches with concrete floors and large windows in each apartment in the four-story building that was constructed in 1910 by Louis Jacobs as a hotel. 

Building Manager Melody Allwine says construction was completed in June 2017. Sona Coffee currently occupies some of the first-floor commercial space and Myers Marketing Management offices expects to open this winter. Additional office/retail space is available.
