Berkeley: 2190 Shattuck - Proposal for New Downtown Berkeley High-Rise Emerges

Berkeleyside recently broke the news that yet another high-rise building is planned for downtown Berkeley. The proposed tower would rise above what is currently a Walgreens store on the corner of Shattuck and Allston. The new development would include 274 units and 12,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Initial renderings show that the building will be 18 floors tall, however, since it's still early in the approval process, designs are subject to change.

While Walgreens will have to find a new home while the building is constructed, the retailer is expected to return once the tower is finished. If their old location across the street hadn't already been rented out to Target, they could have just moved back into their old space for a few years.

Much like the nearby tower that is proposed to replace the Bank of America branch on Shattuck, it's always exciting to see a small commercial structure in a high profile location reimagined on a much grander scale.

Thanks to the reader who sent in the tip!
