This week, the biggest little permits include over sixty additional dwelling units, a 30,000 square foot new medical facility in Alameda, new monuments in Sacramento, and even a treehouse in Palo Alto. At this pace, over three thousand ADU’s would be produced within a year. Along with ADU’s, nineteen new single-family houses were applied for and thirty-four Tesla power walls across the counties. Perhaps the most surprising was a two-story additional dwelling unit in Palo Alto with an estimated construction price of nearly $1.4 million. If ever there was a point where an ADU became just another single-family house, this might be a contender.
Takara Bio USA has released renderings showing off their new vision for the two office buildings at 2560-70 Orchard Parkway in North San Jose. The Bio company hopes to develop a campus environment with enclosed courtyards taking over existing surface parking. Each building will have 64,500 square feet of space, making 129,000 square feet of space in total. Tamara paid $44.8 million in May for the properties. The company is a silicon-based component of a Japanese. Currently, they occupy 57,000 square feet of office space at 1290 Terra Bella Avenue in Mountain View.
Permits have been filed for a new duplex with ADUs at 1317 D Street, located in Sacramento’s Mansion Flats neighborhood. The project will produce four residential units to the city, with three parking spots on site. The development will require splitting an existing lot, a “new cool roof,” and assigning a new address.
Permits have been filed for the new building for 201 Cortland Avenue in Bernal Heights, San Francisco. The corner-plot, overlooking Cortland and Elsie Street, includes dividing the lot and adding residential space. Kennerly Architecture and Planning are responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed to construct a new five-story storage facility at 2390 Mariner Square Driver, Marina Village, overlooking the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland. The 72-foot tall structure will yield 110,844 square feet to the Alameda island, though it will likely also appeal to Oakland residents. Banner Real Estate Group is responsible for the development.
