A condominium complex with 21 town home-style units, a roof deck and plenty of underground parking is planned at the southwest corner of Virginia Avenue and 21st Street.
Fifteen one-story bungalow apartments built between 1935 and 1951 currently sit on the .66-acre site. Plans call for demolishing those units to construct the new complex, according to an environmental report.
According to the report, each of the 21 new residences would be two-story units, with two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms above a private garage. The underground parking structure—accessible via a single driveway from 20th Court Alley—would include 48 spaces, including four spots for guests.
The units would range in size from about 1,022 square feet to 1,554 square feet. Private patios would be built with the ground-floor unit and balconies for those on the second story.
The Environmental Impact Report found the new building would have little impact on traffic, noise and parking in the neighborhood. The public can comment on the report, available here, until 5:30 p.m. Oct. 24 by contacting Steve Mizokami, an associate planner with the city.
Construction would take about a year and could begin as soon as late 2013.
