Plans have been filed for a new three-story residential building at 411 18th Street, in the New Era Park neighborhood of Sacramento. The proposal, tentatively named 18th and DST Apartments, will transform a single-story industrial structure and adjacent vacant lot into a thirteen-unit building with renovated commercial space. Indie Capital LLC is listed as responsible for the development.
The 34-foot tall multi-family housing proposes a gross footprint of 8,505 square feet, split evenly across the three floors. All units are single-bedroom, ranging in size from 480 to 700 square feet, likely targeted at young couples and families. Seven on-street parking spaces will be made available for the development. The existing 2,000 square foot commercial building will also receive a renovation and retained as a music studio.
Gary Lewis of REgroup Arch will be responsible for the design. Showing style that goes beyond just the typical infill residential development, the architect’s renderings show a facade of grey fiber cement with a white textile mesh band across the north-facing second floor. Dark stained wood siding and wood slat gate/screen are used for decorative effect. The U-shaped footprint allows for a central outdoor courtyard for residential use.
The address is located just fifteen minutes walk from the urban core of the city, although minimal public transit services the location. A bus stop for the 129 is a couple blocks away. The site is near some warehouses, and three blocks from the John Muir children’s park.
The development is seeking an entitlement at this point. The developers have not announced an estimated completion date for the project, but around 2023 is not an unlikely time-frame.
