The Planning Department has voted to recommend that the City Council approve the six-story development at 1619 R Street in Downtown, Sacramento. The project requires approval of entitlements including Site Plan and Design Review to construct a six-story mixed-use building with deviations to building height.
Sacramento-based architecture firm, Vrilakas Groen Architects is managing the design concept and construction.
The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 0.89 acres. The proposed building has a gross square footage of 150,779 square feet. A total of 102 multi-unit dwellings will be offered along with 4,246 square feet of commercial space, and live-work units on the ground floor. The units are offered as a mix of twenty-four studios, fifty-nine one-bedroom units, and twenty-one two-bedroom units. The complex will have an on-site parking garage with parking space for 101 vehicles. 6,130 square feet of common open space is also proposed.
The project complements the surrounding development with bold modern architectural design elements. The proposed high-density residential and commercial spaces will support the continued revitalization and transformation of the R Street corridor as a vibrant mixed-use district.
The project includes a request to rezone the site from Office Business to General Commercial. A meeting was held on April 8, 2021, details of which can be found here.
