Design review is pending for an approved residential project proposed at 1367 University Avenue in Berkeley. The project proposal includes the development of a four-story group living accommodation (GLA) operating as single-room occupancy (SRO) residential hotel on a vacant lot. Trachtenberg Architects is responsible for the design concepts.
Filed in 2018, plans by Onni Group and IBI Group proposed a 638-foot tall apartment tower and a 16-story office building that would launch Emeryville, a dense city between Berkeley and Oakland, into the Bay Area’s skyline. Eventually, plans for the tower were withdrawn in 2020. Now, a new developer expects to build at 5801-5861 Christie Avenue, but with a significantly reduced profile.
Construction has topped out for 353 Main Street, a residential infill by the freeway in Redwood City, San Mateo County. The project aims to add over a hundred affordable homes to the city’s housing market. Santa Clara-based ROEM Corporation is responsible for the development.
A new residential project is in the works at 714-716 Rhode Island in Potrero Hill, San Francisco. The project proposal includes the development of a two-family home, offering condominiums at market rate. Plans call for the demolition of the exisiting two-story single-unit building on the site. McMahon Architects is responsible for the design concepts.
Demolition permits have been filed ahead of construction for the six-story residential infill at 4550 Mission Street in Outer Mission, San Francisco. The project will replace two existing commercial buildings with 69 new rental homes, including 17 affordable units. David Chen is responsible for the application via ANJE LLC.
