As we revealed last year, the big plans for redeveloping the Polk Gulch funeral home parcel at 1123 Sutter Street and adjacent three-story garage at the corner of Sutter and Larkin have been supersized.
And as since refined and newly rendered by David Baker Architects below, the development as proposed would now rise up to 152 feet in height upon the mortuary parcel and yield 185 apartments over ground floor commercial and childcare space, with an additional 16 apartments and ground floor retail and professional services space within the redeveloped parking garage structure on the corner and basement garages for a total of 61 cars with their entrances on Hemlock Street.
And with the preparation of a required Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the project about to get underway, Martin Building is now positioning to break ground in mid-2022 and deliver the units, 40 of which are slated to be offered at below market rates (BMR), around the end of 2024.
Keep in mind that the existing mortuary building on the site to be razed is eligible for listing on the California Register of Historical Resources. We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
