The 15 unit Channing Way Townhouse project is proposed for an empty lot in a mixed residential/industrial zone in West Berkeley. Because the site spans two different zoning districts two different unit types are proposed. On the western portion of the site which is zoned “mixe-use/light industrial” the project proposes 5 three-story live/work units. The remaining portion of the site is zoned “residential” zoned and we have proposed 10 three-story townhouses. The site plan is organized around a internal landscaped parking court. Every residential unit will enjoy a small private garden at the front with a front gate to the street. The five live-work units will provide needed space (and very rare) for Artist and Craftspersons, orangized on three floors including a roof top terrace for each unit.
The building is proposed with a skin of integrally colored French Lime Plaster. Large windows and 9-foot ceilings will provide good natural light. The project has been submitted for Zoning review.
