Proposed future infill development of a portion of the multi-parcel, 5.4-acre SMART Site (34 W. 6th Street). Phase 1 development (2.36 acres) proposes a 6-story, residential mixed use building consisting of 110 market-rate studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments with 10% of units reserved for income-qualified households. On- and off-site vehicle parking is proposed, and the applicant will work with TransForm to obtain GreenTRIP Certification and help craft alternative transportation strategies to reduce vehicle use and parking requirements. Public amenity spaces would include potential uses such as fitness center with outdoor swimming pool and open space/play area. The SMART Site Master Plan would include a new public street along the site’s western boundary to connect W 6th and W 3rd streets, and a public promenade to establish a future pedestrian connection between 4th Street/Downtown Santa Rosa Station and the Santa Rosa Creek Greenway.
The SMART Site master plan envisions a series of predominantly residential buildings with ground floor community and retail spaces sited and designed to respond to the Railroad Square and West End Preservation Districts, as well as the historic Cannery Building.
