I noticed the plywood has come down on that new building at 19th and Valencia. Any details on it?The building in question is 3500 19th Street, which replaced a surface parking lot with a 17?unit mixed?use development designed by architectural firm Sternberg/Benjamin. The project has been in the works for a long time, with plans first submitted back in 2006, but suffered through a few years of environmental review appeals. In 2008 it was approved by the Planning Commission, but construction didn't really get started until 2012 and it looks like things are wrapping up.[Trulia]
The new building is divided into two separate structures linked by the ground floor podium and separated at the first residential level by an inner courtyard. It holds 17 units (five 1-bedrooms and twelve 2-bedrooms) over ground floor retail, plus 13 off-street parking spots, two car share spots, and bike storage. Originally the building was going to include two BMR units, but the owners got approval to pay in-lieu fees instead. All the units will be sold as condos, but no word yet on pricing or move-in dates.
