New plans have been submitted for a three-story townhome-style development at 1517 E Street in Mansion Flats, Sacramento. The plans provide five iterations for the exterior color palette, with no indication of which version they expect to use. Tarik Taeha of Pearl Seven Inc is listed as the property owner.
In November 2020, the project developer initially proposed plans to convert the existing structure to house ten units, establishing a brick facade designed by MHA Architects. The newest design shows a remarkable shift with slightly more housing and a protected mid-building pathway.
Facade materials include aluminum, wood-look panels, and carbon crystal salt panels. The five design iterations show differently-colored aluminum panels while retaining the same architectural features. Metal awnings will provide coverage for the rooftop gardens and balconies on each unit.
H&H Consultant Engineering is responsible for the project architecture, landscaping, MEP, and structural engineering. Rose’s will be involved with civil engineering.
The property is midblock between 15th and 16th Street, connecting E Street to Democracy Alley. Future residents will be 15 minutes away from the California State Capitol Park on foot, with most of Downtown Sacramento reachable in less than 15 minutes by bicycle.
Demolition will be required for an existing two-story commercial structure. The now-vacant property had been occupied by the SPCA Thrift Store. The property is located near the Eleanor Apartments at 501 16th Street, developed by SKK Development.
An estimated timeline for construction and completion has not yet been established.

I would like to get on your bid list please for the fire sprinkler system. I would also love to set up a lunch meeting with you and purchasing because I believe we both share the same vision on building new homes. Let me know some dates we can meet up or even have a zoom call.
Very light and unique design. The thing I like the most is it’s simple grid-like design. But in my opinion I think the first color palette for the facade is better, the contrast between the yellow and grey color gives it a sense of coziness and uniqueness.
Thanks Lana i really appricted
