With the plans for a five-story, 129-unit development to rise up to 55 feet in height on the on the northeast corner of Howard and Ninth having been approved back in 2017, the now former Chevron/Burger King/Starbucks on the site was then shuttered and razed in 2018.
As first noted by a plugged-in reader, the shoring equipment arrived late last year. And while the site was already being prepped, the ground was then formally broken on January 1.
In addition to the 129 condo-mapped units, which will be a mix of lofts, studios, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms and two-bedroom townhomes, the 1288 Howard Street project will now yield 12,600 square-feet of ground floor office space as well, with a little 1,250 square foot restaurant/retail space fronting Howard, a basement garage for 71 cars and a mid-block pedestrian alley connecting Howard to Natoma Alley.
And in terms of timing, the development is now expected to be ready for occupancy in the fourth quarter of 2021.
