The project site, located at the southeast corner of 8th Street and Harvard Boulevard, is entitled for the construction of a six-story building featuring 131 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments - including 11 set aside for very-low-income households - above 7,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial uses. Plans also call for 214 parking spaces on two basement levels, as well as open space amenities such as a roof deck, courtyards, and a fitness room.
Large Architecture is designing the podium-type building, which will be clad with plaster and accented with porcelain tile.
A timeline for the project has not been announced.
Two blocks east at 8th Street and Serrano Avenue, a similar mixed-use building is set to replace a former shopping center.
