First of all, I better point out that the Design Review for the Bank of America/Broadway Farmer’s Market site, scheduled for February 4th has been CANCELED. Due to recent acquisitions the project will probably be changing significantly.
But don’t worry, you can still get your Design Review fix on February 18th with the 12th Ave Marketplace Project, by Dunn + Hobbes. This is the final phase in a project which brought us Agnes Lofts, and the restoration of the rest of the buildings along 12th Ave.
The last portion of the project includes a 6-story, 60 unit apartment complex (27 parking stalls). The long skinny building facing 11th will be demolished but the two buildings facing 12th (Pacific Supply and Retrofit Home) will remain. In the center of the site a small public courtyard will connect the entire project. Check out the Design Guide for more info.
The whole project looks pretty nice and all, but I have to say I will miss that old building on 11th. I used to sit on the stairs there and watch shows on the Vera Stage at Block Party….sigh…now I might have to actually buy a ticket.
