Permits have been filed seeking the approval of renovation of a building at 2449 Dwight Way in Telegraph Hill, Berkeley. The project proposal includes the development of additional four stories of residences into a four-story mixed-use building. The exisiting building was damaged in a fire in 2015 and has been unoccupied since then.
Studio KDA is responsible for the design concepts and renovation. Evans Property Co is the property owner.
The property site is a parcel spanning an area of 10,300 square feet. The project proposes to add four additional stories of residential dwelling units into an exisiting four-story building that measures an area of 27,456 square feet. The new construction will result in an eight-story mixed-use structure spanning an area of 56,217 square feet. The new building will offer 51 dwelling units composed of 24 replacement units and 27 new dwelling units, including 2 low-income units. Commercial space spanning an area of 3,600 square feet will be developed on the ground floor.
The existing ground floor is comprised of six commercial tenant suites that occupy a total of 6,755 square feet with four facing Telegraph Avenue and two smaller spaces facing Dwight Way. The existing residential floor area is located on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors with an existing 235 square foot
lobby located on the ground floor facing Dwight Way.
The proposed project will preserve and reinforce the existing masonry facades along Dwight Way and Telegraph Avenue. The building will rise to a height of 83 feet. The project will offer 66 bike parking spaces on the site.
