Project Description:  The Project proposes to develop a new residential building on a 5,506-square-foot site comprised of two parcels located at 713–717½ East 5th Street.  The new eight-story building would include 51 residential units, which would consist of 50 Restricted Affordable Efficiency Dwelling units, with a minimum of 5 percent set aside for Extremely Low Income households and 11 percent for Very Low Income households, and one manager’s unit.  The 33,007-square-foot building would include 433 square feet of supportive service uses, as well as private bathrooms and showers within each dwelling unit.  One surface parking space would be provided.  To accommodate the new uses, the existing 14,475-square-foot residential building, which contains 46 Very Low Income single room occupancy (SRO) units and one manager’s unit, would be demolished.  The existing building does not include support services, nor does it contain private bathrooms and showers within each dwelling unit.
