The eight-story mixed-use apartment is proposed for 14th Street and N Street corner in Sacramento. It consists of 99 units of market-rate apartments with 1,800 sf of retail on the ground level and 66 parking spaces. Six-story wood construction (Type III-A) with AMMR over two level concrete podium (Type I-A) plus basement parking. The massing and design language marks the building as contemporary while referencing the existing surrounding context. The design emphasis is at the pedestrian level with transparent retail at the corner and residential lobby on the street to increase the street's vitality and energy.
The building's upper portions are broken into visually distinctive forms to the existing building scales around them. Exterior building materials will consist of a smooth cement board and cement plaster finish in neutral colors contrasted by balcony elements.
