5:30 PM         12th Avenue and E. Remington Court    This is a project at the location of several local East African businesses which have been closed in preparation for the project.  The developer describes the project:
              This project involves the renovation of a 1923 2-story unreinforced masonry mixed-use building. The project will also add additional units to the site by creating a third floor penthouse on top of the existing building and expanding onto the east portion of the property, which is currently occupied by a surface parking lot. The added units will make it feasible to take on the significant costs associated with seismically upgrading the existing building. The goal of the design and development team is to create an environmentally-friendly mixed-use building that elegantly mixes old and new, enhancing the corner of 12th and Remington for the public and improving the habitability of the existing building for future generations of residential and commercial tenants.
6:15 PM          22nd Avenue and E. Union St.  This is the first announced project proposed under recent state law that allows cities to rezone sites on property owned by churches to allow the development of affordable housing.  In this case, property owned by the Lutheran Church zoned LR (lowrise) would be rezoned to allow a seven story building with approximately 100 small efficiency dwelling units (SEDU). The building would be north of the existing church parking lot.  The church and the parking lot would remain.  According to the developer, the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI): 
Of the units, 75% will be reserved for homeless individuals and 25% will serve the needs of low wage workers at risk of displacement from the Central Area.LIHI will implement affirmative marketing to ensure that the neighborhood residents experiencing homelessness and who are at risk of displacement are aware of the rental opportunities the building offers.  Units will be for those whose income is less than 50% of median income, currently $38,750 per year.
