If you’ve been wondering what’s been rising on Broadway between Battery and Front, you’re probably not alone. And thanks to a plugged-in tipster, we have the update (and a photo):
Broadway Family Apartments, 81 units of affordable family housing with Bay Bridge views, will be completed as of April 2008. The project includes 3 buildings (one mid rise and two low rise), a below grade parking garage [41 spaces and City CarShare], and 2 podium level courtyards. The design also provides child care services, two retail spaces, and common gathering rooms for both the residents and the larger neighborhood. Chinatown Community Development Center is the developer for the project [with design by Solomon E.T.C.].
And sorry folks, but they’re no longer accepting applications for the 80 apartments (the 81st will be occupied by a manager). And if you submitted one, you’re one of 8,500.
