New plans have been filed for a six-story residential development at 2201 San Pablo Avenue in Southwest Berkeley, Alameda County. The SB-330 assisted filing could replace a surface parking lot and single-story commercial structure with 65 new homes. IFR Design Studio is responsible for the application.
The six-story project will yield 48,290 square feet, including parking, commercial retail, and a childcare facility. The developer has included six very low-income affordable homes to utilize the 50% State Density Bonus program. The 65 apartments will span 45,990 square feet, averaging just over 700 square feet per unit. The application states that parking will be included but does not specify how much or if it will include cars and bicycles or just bicycles.
A Santa Clara-based Family Trust is listed as the property owner.
The property is located on the corner of San Pablo Avenue and Allston Way, nearby AC Transit bus stops. Residents will be 15 minutes away from Berkeley’s Amtrak Station, where the Capitol Corridor trains move between the Bay Area to Sacramento. Downtown Berkeley is less than ten minutes away by bicycle. The North Berkeley BART Station is less than 20 minutes away on foot.

20 minutes by foot to BART is not close enough to BART btw. Still in park and drive territory, unfortunately. Curious how the buses are in Berkeley though!
6 min leisurely bike ride- mostly on the Ohlone- it’s plenty close to Bart. And San Pablo is getting bus only lanes soon- overall the location is transit rich.
