506-556 Santa Cruz Ave./1125 Merrill St. project

SCA/Merrill perspective

Project description

The applicant (represented by Chase Rapp) is proposing to demolish all existing structures and redevelop the three parcels at 506 Santa Cruz Avenue, 556 Santa Cruz Avenue, and 1125 Merrill Street with three mixed-use buildings. The parcels would not be merged, but the project would be a coordinated proposal with linked elements, such as access. The overall proposal would be comprised of:

  • Total size: 42,187 square feet
  • Non-medical office: 22,243 square feet
  • Residential: 8 dwelling units
  • Retail/restaurant: 4,631 square feet

Current status

The project is under preliminary staff review. The Planning Commission held a study session on the proposal on February 5, 2018 (staff report). 

The Housing Commission will review and provide a recommendation on the BMR proposal at the April 11, 2018 meeting, and the Planning Commission will also review and act on the proposal in the future.
