Construction is now underway on a massive, new student housing project at UC Berkeley. The project proposal includes the development of a 14-story building dedicated entirely to house transfer students on the campus of UC Berkeley. Plans call for the demolition of two historic structures as well as a 112-year-old rent-controlled building at 1921 Walnut Street. Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible for the design concepts. Anchor House was developed in collaboration with the Helen Diller Foundation and UC Berkeley Capital Strategies.
A new residential project has been proposed at 829 Hillsdale Avenue in San Jose.

The project proposal includes the conversion of four existing residential units into four residential units. Victran Realty is the property owner. Decker Engineers is the civil engineer involved in the project.
