DEVELOPMENT: Teardown time at Admiral Station site

Demolition has begun at 2715 California SW, across from Hiawatha, clearing the site where the long-planned Admiral Station mixed-use development will be built. We reported on the project’s land-use approval two years ago, when it was described as a “4-story, 49-unit apartment building (44 units and 5 small efficiency units) with retail and office” and 46 off-street parking spaces. The view above is from the alley on the west side of the site. Here’s a rendering from when the project went through Design Review in 2017:

The site held three small commercial/residential buildings; construction is expected to last about a year. (Thanks to the reader whose recent tip about activity at the site put this back on our watch list!)

    In the 1930 U.S. census Fred and Mabel Ratzman lived at 2715 California Ave SW.  They had 4 children, Pauline, Phyllis, Lyle and Earl.  Fred was a sheet metal worker and the home was valued at $5000.
