Yet another Upper Market Street site is set to potentially become housing, adding to the transformation of the corridor that has been taking place over the past few years. Axis Development Group has just filed plans to build 88 new units at 1965 Market Street, on the corner of Duboce Avenue, right across from Linea. The units are currently slated to be rentals, according to Axis managing partner Muhammad A. Nadhiri, but of course plans are still in the very, very early stages. Below-market-rate apartments are set to be located on-site. The eight-story building will be constructed to meet LEED Gold standards.
BAR Architects had previously put together designs for 72 units on the site, but now David Baker Architects is on board to design the building. It will have a roof deck, bicycle, and car share parking, and 6,500 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The property is currently home to several tenants, including a FedEx Office, an H&R Block, and a law office, as well as a parking lot. Axis hasn't yet fully determined how it will deal with the existing structures that stand on the site, though from the looks of the preliminary rendering, the buildings could remain; the new mixed-use development is shown in a position set back from the street, behind a set of low-rise structures.
