At the same Southwest Design Review Board meeting last night where the latest Charlestown/Cali Petco plan was panned, a condo/retail building in the Admiral District got thumbs up. It’s the project proposed for this space @ 2310 Cali, south of Admiral Pub:
Architect Terry Williams (of Thienes/Williams Architects) showed the board revised renderings for the 4-story building, which will maximize its 50-foot-wide lot with 12 condos, with a residential entrance on the left side of the first floor (see rendering below), retail to the right of that, with its entrance at the far right. Note the plantings and seating bench planned on the street in front:
The next rendering shows the rear view (thanks to Terry for sending us these images so we could share with you); 12 parking spaces are behind the first-floor doors.
Board members approved the design with just a few conditions: They want the flat roof over the parking area to become some sort of common space for residents; previously it was going to be simply a torch-down roof. They also asked for a few aesthetic changes around the front balconies, and tweaks to the rooftop deck, but overall had praise for the plan, which had undergone significant changes since its “Early Design Guidance” meeting exactly one year earlier. Next step, the developer applies for permits to get closer to construction.
