2136-2154 San Pablo Avenue Mixed-Use Project
The project would demolish the existing 9,000-square-foot, one-story building on the project site and construct a six-story, mixed-use building. The proposed building has the following characteristics: •Six stories (69 feet 6 inches) in height; •A total of 123 dwelling units and three live/work units (including six loft-style units)and three live-work units; •A total of 82,824 square feet of gross floor area (including a density bonus); •A parking garage with 50 vehicle parking spaces; •A secure, ground-floor bicycle storage room with long-term parking for 64bicycles and short-term parking for eight bicycles; and •A total of 6,319 square feet of open space. The three live-work units and six loft-style dwelling units would be at the ground floor, with the live-work units fronting on San Pablo Avenue and the loft-style units facing the back of the lot and George Florence Park to the west. Each of the live-work units would have a mezzanine for exclusively residential space (Figure III-4). The ground floor would also include a community room, lounge, mail room, trash room, parking garage, and bicycle storage room. Floors two through five would be comprised of 117 dwelling units, consisting of 36 studios, 76 one-bedroom units, and five two-bedroom units. The building’s massing would step down from six stories at the front facing San Pablo Avenue to four stories at the rear towards the west. West-facing rooftop gardens would be accessed via the fourth and sixth floors. The project also features a common open space area at the podium level (level 2) facing west, toward the rear of the property. Automobile access to and from the parking garage would be provided via a driveway at the northeast corner of the building on San Pablo Avenue. Pursuant to State Density Bonus law, the inclusion of 10 very-low-income (VLI) units entitles a project to a density bonus of 32.5%, or 31 units (added to the 95-unit base project, for a final project of 126 units), waivers to building height and floor-to-area ratio development standards, and a concession to reduce the vehicle parking requirement.
