3637-3657 Sacramento Street is a proposed 4 story, mixed-use, residential development located in the heart of Laurel Heights, replacing an existing medical/office building and a parking structure. The design of this project was greatly influenced by the neighborhood. With its brick and plaster façade, the project works to maintain the conservative elegance of the neighborhood by complementing the diversity of the surrounding individuals and buildings.

The proposed development will bring a refreshed look and vitality on the 3600 block of Sacramento Street, between Spruce and Locust Streets. The project not only hopes to bring relief to the challenges of parking in the busy neighborhood but also enhance pedestrian experience, making for a more vibrant and safe place to live.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How will this project affect the availability of street parking?
3637-3657 Sacramento Street will consist of three levels of underground parking, providing a total of 63 spaces. It is designed to include one off street parking space per residential unit in an effort to minimize any effect on the existing street parking and 45 short-term spaces available for daily parkers.
Will there be bike parking available?
Yes, there will be an area designated for bicycle parking within the garage with 35 spaces.
What will be located on the ground floor space?
Consisting of approximately 6,000 square feet, this ground floor retail space will attract a variety of venues for dining, local wares and neighborhood services that will celebrate the unique diversity of our city.
What will be located on the upper floors of the building?
The 2nd floor will consist of approximately 9,500 square feet of office space open to medical, dental and other uses allowed by the City.
The 3rd and 4th floors will be made up of 18 total residential units.
What types of residential units will be there?
3637-3657 Sacramento Street will increase the neighborhood’s supply of housing with a desirable range of unit sizes. There will be a mixture of 1- and 2-bedrooms units.
How tall will the building be?
The project will have a height of 40’, which is the maximum allowable per City code, an increase of 7’ from the existing building.
How much open space will be provided?
The project will provide rear yard open space that is just over 33 feet deep running the width of the site which totals 2,734 square feet. There is one private deck with an additional 53 square feet of open space. This exceeds the amount of open space required by the City and provides a rear yard separation between the project and neighbors to the south. Currently, there is no rear yard space, so this will be a welcome improvement.
PLEASE SIGN OUR LETTER OF SUPPORT
We are still waiting to present the 3637-3657 Sacramento Street Development Project before the Planning Commission for approval. The more community support the Planning Commission hears, the better the chances of the 3637-3657 Sacramento Street Project’s approval!
To whom it may concern:
This letter is to express support for the proposed project at 3637-3657 Sacramento Street. I have reviewed the architectural drawings dated March 17, 2017 (with latest revisions dated November 21, 2017) for the demolition of the two structures and construction of one new mixed-use building.
The addition of new ground floor retail/commercial space will enhance the pedestrian experience of Sacramento Street. The new construction will also bring in new housing and additional parking to this neighborhood.
(Please fill out information below, and we will compile responses to send to the Planning Commission prior to meeting with the Planning Commission.)
