The report details developer Reliable Properties’s plans for the two-acre site at the intersection’s northwest corner. Those plans include a six-story building that, if ultimately approved by the city, would bring 293 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments to the neighborhood, plus 33,000 square feet of commercial space along the street. (Fifteen of the apartments will be available to very low-income tenants.)
Construction on this Withee Malcolm Architects-designed project, called SunWest, is expected to take about two years, though a start date hasn’t been announced.
The SunWest project will have company at the Sunset and Western intersection. Another project is slated for the southeast corner of the block, currently occupied by a Food 4 Less market. That project would bring nearly another 800 apartments to the neighborhood.
