[maxgallery name=”360-berry-street-eviva-mission-bay-maps-and-renderings”]Persistently shunned by developers, Mission Bay’s 360 Berry Street property sat empty for years as new buildings sprouted on adjacent lots guided by the 90’s era Mission Bay North Owner Participation Agreement. The wedge shaped property, previously referred to as Block N4P3, proved an unprofitable housing venture given the nearby proximity of Interstate 280 and a 62% affordability requirement decreed by the Mission Bay agreement. In 2011, real estate firm Integral Group worked with the city to relax the BMR mandate down to 20% and ultimately negotiated a deal for 103 market rate and 26 below market rate apartments. Additional investment by Argosy Real Estate last year gave enough momentum for the project to move forward and eventually led to a ground breaking earlier this year.[maxgallery name=”360-berry-street-eviva-mission-bay-construction”]Several visits to the .94 acre site earlier this month showed the land being prepped for foundation pours in order to support the future five story building. Based on our analysis of LDA Architect’s renderings, the building shows an economic design ethos focused on minimalism and austerity. In other words, forgettable architecture. Suffolk Construction is planned to wrap up construction of the project, currently marketed as Eviva Mission Bay, by either late 2016 or early 2017.
