New renderings were recently published for a residential infill project proposed for development at 1752 Shattuck Avenue in North Berkeley, Alameda County. The project proposal includes the construction of a seven-story building offering spaces for residential uses alongside retail. The project application requested to demolish an empty single-story vehicle service building on the site.
Panoramic Interests is the project developer. Trachtenberg Architects is responsible for the designs. The Garden Route is the landscape architect.
The seven-story building will yield a total built-up area spanning 51,160 square feet, with 45,410 square feet for housing, 1,210 square feet for retail, and 4,030 square feet for a garage at the ground level. The residential units will be designed as a mix of 11 studios, 29 two-bedrooms, and 28 three-bedrooms. Onsite parking will be included for six cars and 33 bicycles. Of the 68 units, seven will be designated as affordable to very low-income households.
As covered previously, new renderings showcase a more colorful vibrant façade that will rise to a height of 79 feet. The exterior is designed to look like three thinner infills, clad with white stucco, grey stucco, and parklex wood panels. The ground level façade features floor-to-ceiling windows and cast-in-place concrete.
A final design review meeting has been scheduled on July 20, Thursday, details of joining can be found here. The site is located along the retail-oriented Shattuck Avenue between Francisco Street and Delaware Street. Construction is expected to last around 16 months, though a groundbreaking date has yet to be established.
