The Entitlement Application has been filed for a seven-story apartment project at 2130 J Street in Boulevard Park, Sacramento. The proposal aims to replace a surface parking lot within walking distance of Downtown Sacramento with 91 homes above ground-level retail. Stonebridge Properties is the property owner and sponsor.
The 85-foot tall structure will yield around 81,820 square feet with 56,660 square feet for housing, 3,980 square feet of common area, and 6,670 square feet for the 33-car garage. Additional parking will be included for 94 bicycles. Of the 91 units, 49 will be studios, and 42 will be one-bedrooms.
LPAS is the project architect. The five-over-two urban infill has an articulated contemporary mid-rise on top of the brick base. Apartments will have floor-to-ceiling windows. Facade materials will include cement plaster, thin brick, brushed bronze metal accents, and a mural integrated along the north and east elevations. The metal residential entry proposes an attractive and distinct entrance for residents.
Neoteric Design Group is the landscape architect. The sidewalk will be improved with a line of planters and low shrubs around existing trees that will remain protected. For residents, the rooftop amenity space includes an outdoor deck and barbecue pit between a lounge and fitness center.
The 0.29-acre property is a surface parking lot next to the First United Methodist Church along 21st Street. There are several retail shops and restaurants within the immediate area and a bus commuting directly into Downtown Sacramento.
Cunningham Engineering Corporation is consulting on civil engineering. The estimated cost and timeline for construction have yet to be established.
