New building permits have been filed for a multi-family housing development at 401 1st Avenue in Upper Land Park, Sacramento. The application comes after Design Review files were approved by the Sacramento Planning Commission in late April this year. The proposal includes the development of an apartment complex around an open courtyard and commerical retail space.
REgroup, the Sacramento-based architecture firm, is managing the project.
The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 0.65 acres. Named Mill at Broadway, the project proposes the addition of 49 new apartments above commercial space adjacent to the over eight hundred-unit large project under construction. Residential units will be offered as a mix of studios and two bedrooms.
The building facade will rise to a heigh of 41 feet, yeilding a total built-up area of 54,660 square feet. The total residential area will span 46,550 square feet and the total parking area will span 8,060 square feet for the 18-car garage. Space is also included for retail, with the plan expecting the space will be occupied by a local coffee shop. Parking will also be included on-site for 18 bicycles.
As described in a previous article, the U-shaped floor plans are designed for the structure centered around the podium-capped courtyard. The community area will include a grassy lawn for outdoor activities, a shaded graveled area, and open-air lounging areas.
