Permits have been filed for a residential expansion at 990 Geary Street in the Tenderloin, San Francisco. The building’s first floor will be refurbished to make way for seven new residential units, along with an interior renovation of the full structure. This will bring the unit count of the structure up from 60 apartments to 67.
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.

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.
