New renderings have been published for a three-story residential infill at 739 Sutter Avenue in Midtown, Palo Alto. The project hopes to replace an eight-unit apartment complex with twelve townhome units, including some affordable houses. Pleasanton-based DAHLIN Group is responsible for the design.
The project will be split between two similarly-styled structures. Facade materials proposed include stucco, horizontal siding, cementitious panels, and wood doors with an accent color. A central driveway will feature in the lot interior, while the setback area between the building and lot edges will feature green open space designed by Anyi Landscape Studio.
The 35-foot tall structure will yield 16,770 square feet. Construction will create ten market-rate units and two deed-restricted units affordable for low-income households. The apartments will range between 1,200 and 1,600 square feet, each with a two-car garage and open-air deck.
The proposal also anticipates using the State Density Bonus program, receiving a 50 percent density increase with related waivers since the project includes affordable housing.
BKF is the civil engineer. Grace Li, a real estate developer based in San Mateo, filing through Sutter 739 Associates LLC, is responsible for the project. An estimated project cost and timeline have not been established.
