Plans to demolish to the two single-family homes, three apartments and Twin’s Armoire building which span 842-860 California Street and back to 119 Joice are in the works. And as envisioned, a modern 7-story building could rise up to 65 feet in height upon the aggregated 842 California Street site.
As designed by Cass Calder Smith, the development would yield a total of 24 residential units, with 21 market-rate condominiums, 3 market-rate rental units to replace the 3 which would be razed, and a combined 12 one-bedrooms, 10 twos and 2 threes.
A basement garage with its entrance on Joice would provide parking for 9 cars and 24 bikes. And a shared rooftop terrace with built-in seating, a communal fire pit and an outdoor kitchen/grill would yield sweeping city views.
Expect some pushback from the University Club up the hill which overlooks the site. We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
