An application has been submitted to the Berkeley Design Review Committee seeking the approval of a new eight-story mixed-use building at 2000 University Avenue and 2001 Milvia in Downtown Berkeley. The project proposal includes the demolition of the two existing commercial structures and the construction of a building with 82 dwelling units and commercial space. The proposed demolition was submitted to Landmarks Preservation Commission for review on March 4, 2021, for which no action was taken.
Construction crews are making project on a multi-family residential building at 2556 Telegraph Avenue, at the border of South Berkeley and Southside. Named The Laureate, the building will rise five stories, adding little to the city skyline. Realtex Group is credited as the property owner, with Bright Street operating as the project manager.
Developers will be presenting the preliminary design review for the 845,590 square foot research campus at 600 Addison Street later tonight to the Berkeley Design Review Committee. The project will add a new campus for medical research in the Southwest Berkeley neighborhood, overlooking Aquatic Park. Lane Partners and LB2 Partners are developing as a joint venture.
Construction has topped out for the MacFarlane Building at 2111 University Avenue, one of four residential structures rising at the Modera Acheson Commons project in Downtown Berkeley. Each structure makes adaptive reuse of low-rise commercial sites to add 203 new apartments to the Berkeley housing market. Mill Creek Residential is sponsoring as the project applicant after acquiring the site from Equity Residential in 2016.
Construction has topped out for the first of two phases of Logan Park, a residential development at 2352 Shattuck Avenue in Downtown Berkeley. The eight-story structure will have two-thirds of the 204 total apartments expected from the project, of which 14 will be sold to residents in the Very Low-Income bracket. The Austin Group and CA Ventures are the project developers.
