Plans for a mixed-use campus next to the Arts District's Soho Warehouse have taken another step forward, with the publication this week of a draft environmental impact report for the project.
Slated for a 1.8-acre property at 2110 Bay Street, the proposed development would consist of three standalone buildings featuring 110 live/work apartments - including 11 for low-income households - with 113,000 square feet of office space, 51,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, and parking for 479 vehicles.
Studio One Eleven is designing the project, which is described as featuring a "contemporary industrial" style with finishes including wood, concrete, and brick. The campus would be organized into commercial and residential sections, connected by pedestrian passages and plazas cutting across the development site.
Plans call for a mix of ground-up construction and reuse. The proposed live/work apartments - which would come in a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom floor plans - would be situated in an 11-story, 149-foot-tall building, adorned with a series of open-air decks. The office space would line the eastern side of the property in a seven-story edifice. Most of the retail space would be located in a repurposed shed which fronts Bay Street.
Construction of the 2110 Bay development is expected to occur over roughly 35 months. The environmental report examines a start date in July 2019 and a completion date in June 2022, though an official timeline has not been announced.
The project site neighbors an office campus which now houses the headquarters of Virgin Hyperloop One, which New York-based developer Tishman Speyer is planning to redevelop with just over 200,000 square feet of office space.
