The large site for this student-targeted development presented many opportunities and constraints. While its entire west edge is directly adjacent to the Burke Gilman Trail, it lacks arterial street frontage. The goal is to create two “front doors” to the project: one along the Trail and one along 24th Street, all while allowing for public access to the Trail from the east (where there is currently no connection). Our proposed solution maximizes development potential, while also maximizing outdoor space at the ground plane for students and provides public access to the Trail on the south side of the site.
The project is proposing a street vacation, setting up a process-heavy entitlement phase.
Trailside Student Housing is currently targeting a Q3 2019 construction start.
