The Arts District’s development boom is holding steady, with about 20 projects in various stages of development right now in the neighborhood, and counting. A newly announced mixed-use building would rise in a primo spot near eateries Little Bear and Church & State, which sits on the ground floor of the chic Biscuit Company Lofts building.
Plans filed yesterday with the city's planning department lay out a new future for a 44,800-square foot site at 676 South Mateo Street—right at the intersection of Mateo and Industrial Street. The property currently hosts a 27,000-square-foot warehouse, but the plans call for the building to be demolished and replaced with an 85-foot-tall new building holding 172 live/work units, 11 percent of which would be set aside for very low-income tenants, says the filing.
The new structure would also hold about 23,000 square feet of commercial space—bars or restaurants or both, judging from the filing’s request to have alcohol sold in up to four establishments on the site.
Curbed has reached out to the developer, which is listed on the planning filing as a six-month-old limited partnership called District Centre, for more information.
