Sutter Park will offer 201 new homes, including 40 on-site affordable units and an adjacent 3,500 square foot child care center.

This new mixed-use development will be located at 1101-1123 Sutter on an approximately 29,700 SF site, currently occupied by two structures: an auto repair shop with public garage (at 1101 Sutter) and a mortuary (at 1123 Sutter).

At the corner of Sutter and Larkin, the three-level concrete auto-repair building—built in 1920 and designated an A-status Historic Resource—will be renovated into a mixed-use residential structure. The ground floor will feature commercial space, a residential lobby, and an interior connection with the adjacent new residential high-rise. The second and third levels of the historic building will accommodate 16 residential units, and the structure will undergo improvements to the partially below-grade garage to provide building parking.

At the west side of the site, the mortuary will be removed for new construction of a 14-story high-rise tower. This high-density development will utilize the Individually Requested State Density Bonus Program to increase the number of code-permitted units from 149 to 201. In total, the pair of buildings will provide 201 new homes, including 40 below-market-rate units.

The 14-story, 150-foot tower will offer 185 rental apartments over an active, pedestrian-friendly commercial ground floor. Oriented toward Sutter Street, the dynamic street level incorporates a mix of uses, including the primary residential lobby, common amenities for residents, commercial and retail spaces, and a child care center.

At Hemlock Alley to the south, the ground level will include an outdoor entry court that serves a second residential lobby and a flex gallery space. The building is set back from the alley at various distances to accommodate the entry court, an outdoor area for the child care center, private terraces and balconies, and access to the garage and loading entries.

Midway up the tower, on the 7th floor, the building steps back about 40 feet on the west side, to provide a shared landscaped area at this setback. At the 14th floor, the building steps back on all sides to allow common view decks at each aspect. This top floor provides shared view points as well as building services and community rooms.
