Details plans have been published for the eight-story residential corner lot at 2100 Milvia Street in Downtown Berkeley, Alameda County. The project will replace the two-story commercial building with 201 apartments, including three live-work units. 4Terra Investments is the project sponsor.
The 95-foot-tall structure will yield around 195,080 square feet, with 143,090 square feet for housing, 5,700 square feet for the nine-car garage, and 4,000 square feet for retail. Apartment sizes will vary, with three live-work units, 105 studios, and 96 two-bedrooms. Of the 201 apartments, 13 will be designated as affordable to very low-income households.
Kava Massih Architects is responsible for the design. The podium-style apartment block will center around a full-height diagrid feature along the Addison Street facade. The structure extends from the ground to the rooftop, where it culminates as a trellis for the amenity deck.
Demolition will be required for the two-story commercial building. The site is across from where NX Ventures is planning 2109 Milvia Street, and one block from the construction site at 2000 Shattuck Avenue by Read Investments.
The 0.77-acre parcel is located at the corner of Milvia Street and Addison Street, close to the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park. Residents will be a block from the Downtown Berkeley BART Station. SRM Associates, an address linked to Marina Village Yacht Harbor, is the property owner.
The estimated timeline for construction and completion has yet to be established.
