Back in the day when Paul Allen and Bill Gates were in high school, they used to hang out at the Computer Center Corporation where they honed the computer skills that would one day lead to the creation of Microsoft. In 2001, Paul Allen bought the building on that site and now Vulcan Real Estate will turn the site into an apartment complex. So it goes. The seven-story Augusta Apartments will include 208 market-rate apartment units as well as 3,600 square feet of ground-floor retail. Runberg Architecture Group is the designer on the project, which is set to open in 2017. Vulcan says the property is named after Augusta Ada Byron, a British mathematician and writer who is regarded as the first computer programmer. Apropos, then.
