Progress for a Proposed 127-Unit Potrero Hill Development
Martin Building is pushing forward with plans for a Lower Potrero Hill development to rise up to five-stories at 17th and Arkansas Streets, across from Jackson Park.
As designed by BAR Architects, the proposed 88 Arkansas project includes 127 apartments – a mix of 25 studios averaging 435 square feet, 50 one-bedrooms averaging 600 square feet, and 52 two-bedrooms averaging 866 square feet – over a basement garage for 98 cars and 107 bikes and 3,300 square feet of double-height restaurant space fronting 17th Street.
The building’s entrances and five townhomes would line the street along Arkansas.
And while the application for the development is still under review by the City’s Planning Department, a review which was expedited as Martin has proposed to include 20 percent below market rate units and build a LEED Platinum product, the paperwork to secure the necessary building permits for the project has now been filed as well.
