Also in front of the Planning Commission this afternoon, a proposal to raze three existing structures at 634-636 Plymouth Avenue (one legal dwelling and two non-residential accessory buildings), subdivide the 12,500 square foot Oceanview lot into six, and infill with six new single-family homes.
The replacement structures will be family-sized units: they are all three-stories in height and will be articulated at the façade to provide a two-story street wall. Two of the six dwellings will contain four bedrooms, and four of the six dwellings will contain five bedrooms.
The buildings’ architectural form and detailing has included numerous design features found throughout the neighborhood, including the use of ground floor entrances, asymmetrical rectangular bay windows, punched single-hung and fixed window openings surrounded by wood trim, and a faux gable parapet at the front of the building with a flat roof for the remainder of the building. The proposed materials are residential in character, incorporating redwood siding, 3-coat stucco, fiberglass windows and wood trim.
As part of this Project, the Project Sponsor has also committed to building a sidewalk bulbout at the southeast corner of the Plymouth Avenue/Montana Street intersection in order to mitigate impacts from the new garage insertions [two cars per] and curb cuts.
The Planning Department’s preliminary recommendation: approve demolition and construction as proposed. Click on either image to enlarge. And call it over 9000 lots to go.
