Avant Housing is breaking ground today on its nine-story, 282-unit urban-infill apartment development at 900 Folsom in SoMa. The project will be replacing a large parking lot (don't fret! Residents will have access to underground parking), and was designed by Architecture International. It's going for LEED Gold status, which is quite a goal, considering it'd be the first multi-family mixed-use project to do so in the Bay Area. The 282 residences will be a mix of studios; one-, two- and three-bedroom condos. Oh, and some penthouses. 15% will be below market-rate homes. The street-level will be 5,000-square-feet of retail space and about 210 parking spaces. Building amenities include a roof terrace, landscaped courtyard, multimedia fitness facility, and secured bike storage. If all goes as planned (which it hardly ever does), folks will be moving in in 2014.
What's up with the sister project next door at 260 5th Street? The 181-unit building is scheduled to start construction in late summer of this year.
