A Pre-Application Conference has been scheduled to discuss a proposed apartment building at NE 20th and Hoyt. The 6 story building by C2K Architecture would include 54 residential units. 18 parking spaces would be provided in a tuck under garage. An 884 sq ft retail space would be located at the ground floor.
The site at 606 NE 20th Ave is currently occupied by a two story apartment building, built in 1942.
The Pre-Application Conference [PDF] is scheduled for November 12th 2015 at 10:30 AM. The project will be required to go through a Type III Design Review with hearings before the Design Commission.
Looks good. The building proposed one block south though might be the only mixed-use construction in the city I’m unenthusiastic about, as it will require demolishing my beloved Club 21.
yet another neutral tone building. yawn! are architects afraid of color?
OK, now that they’re knocking down apartment buildings too I’m outraged and switching to the Chronicle for my development news.
Seriously though, have there been other instances yet of seemingly functional and attractive multifamily buildings being knocked down for larger multifamily buildings? That seems like a new frontier.
It’s definitely not common, but I don’t think it’s totally unprecedented. The demolition of the Rosefriend Apartments to build the Ladd Tower and the apts at NE 6th and Couch come to mind. But that’s the only two I can think of in 10 years.
