New design permits have been filed for 1220 H Street in Downtown Sacramento, a planned mixed-use building with adaptive reuse of a brutalist facade. The alteration brings 28 new units, making this a 137-unit development. Cliff Orloff of Orloff Property Management Inc. is responsible for the development.
Kuchman Architects are responsible for designing the contemporary infill, with bold colors to complement its architectural companion. The facade is clad with white plaster and a mixture of beige, grey, and copper-toned metal siding. The well-preserved 58-year-old brutalist facade will be a part of the north-facing side along H Street.
The 92-foot structure will yield 114,000 square feet on top of the 15,000 square foot parcel. The residencies are a mix of studio and single-bedroom units for the city’s working population. Four parking spaces will be included on-site, in a mov that takes advantage of the city’s existing public transit. 4,370 square feet of commercial retail space will be provided at the ground level.
The plot is on the edge of the city’s small urban core, with single-family development just one block north and the state capitol four blocks south. The future residents will have quick access to the light rail’s Blue Line, moving north to south from the Airport, through downtown, and ending at Cosumnes River College.
An estimated completion date has not been announced.
