Berkeley: 1950 Addison - Another Downtown Berkeley Mixed-User

Rendering: Bay Rock Multifamily
Another mixed-use building is in the works for Downtown Berkeley. Across the street from 1935 Addison, this project from developer BayRock looks similar to a lot of what's been going up in the area: 6-story housing project with ground-floor retail spaces. From the rendering it appears that the developer will include the existing office building's facade rather than demolish it completely. This is likely being done to appease the city which may determine that the building on the site is historically significant to some extent. The project still needs city approvals but let's hope things will move smoothly so we can kiss another surface lot (and adjacent low-rise office building) goodbye.
