Renderings: Berkeley Side
Mill Creek Residential, a national development company, has proposed an 18-story mixed-use development to go above (or possibly replace) the Walgreens on Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley, California. If approved, Shattuck Terrace Green Apartments would be the third and final 180-foot building of the Downtown Area Project (DAP), proposed by the City of Berkeley back in 2012.
The other 180-foot structures include a development at 2211 Harold Way, which, despite receiving approval from council, has seen its progress slow as the development is being challenged in court by a concerned citizen who contends the City did not do an adequate environmental review of the 302-unit complex. The other building is a 16-story hotel proposal at Shattuck Avenue and Center Street. That project is still working it’s way through the permit process.
For Shattuck Terrace Green Apartments, the plan calls for 274 apartment units above street-level commercial and retail space as well as a 19,000-square-foot underground garage.
The proposal is targeting LEED Gold certification with transit passes for all households and employees, as well as an onsite bicycle storage and repair shop.
