The proposed project is on the southwest corner of 14th and N Streets overlooking Capitol Park. It is an eight-story mixed-use development that includes 98 market-rate studio, one, two, and three bedroom rental and condominium units, 1,900 square feet of ground floor retail, and 67 parking stalls. The residential entrance/lobby and retail space are oriented along N Street. The 2nd floor terrace includes a pool with landscaping to provide shaded privacy for residents, lounge, and gym. The 8th floor terrace will include a seating area, outdoor BBQ and community table, native planting with built-in seating, and a shade structure.
The massing and design marks the building as contemporary while referencing the surrounding context. The design emphasis is at the pedestrian level with transparent retail at the corner and residential lobby on the street to contribute vitality and energy to the street. The building’s upper portions are broken into visually distinctive forms to the existing building scales around them. Exterior building materials will consist of a smooth cement board and smooth stucco finish in neutral colors contrasted by balcony elements. The building provides a porcelain tile finish on the ground level.
CADA’s Affordable Housing Mandate:
CADA’s mission is to help create a neighborhood for all, including all household types and incomes. CADA is mandated to preserve 25% of its housing stock (units that CADA manages or builds) as affordable units. Even though the Cypress will be a higher-end project, CADA’s mission is to help create a neighborhood for all, including all household types and incomes. CADA will continue to build or preserve at least 25% of its housing stock as affordable units, thus increasing both market-rate and affordable housing in the neighborhood.
