The fast-tracked hearing for Martin Building Company’s proposed Lower Potrero Hill development to rise up to five-stories at 17th and Arkansas Streets, across from Jackson Park, has been scheduled for March 3.
As designed by BAR Architects, the proposed 88 Arkansas project includes 127 apartments – a mix of 25 studios averaging 435 square feet, 50 one-bedrooms averaging 600 square feet, and 52 two-bedrooms averaging 866 square feet – over a basement garage for 98 cars and 3,300 square feet of double-height restaurant space fronting 17th Street.
The building’s entrances and five townhomes would line the street along Arkansas.
Planning’s review of the proposed development was expedited by Martin’s having proposed to include 20 percent below market rate units onsite and build a LEED Platinum product.
And as we first reported last month, the paperwork to secure the necessary building permits for the project at 88 Arkansas has already been filed as well.
