NEW DEVELOPMENT IN THE BREWERY DISTRICT: A plan in the works for over 3 years to rehab and add floors to the properties off 21st & Commerce street appears to be moving forward. The Oakland-based developer, Horizon Partners Northwest, has been working with the city on the plan and a demolition permit has been applied for to remove the 1-story parking garage in the middle of the property. It is not known if they plan a new building where the garage is being removed. Horizon Par...tners also owns the southern half of the block
From a 2013 Business Examiner post:
Horizon plans to add four stories to the largest of the buildings. That addition will take the largest building from three to seven stories on its downhill side, facing Commerce Street side, and from one to five stories on the uphill South C Street side. Floors one and two will have retail space, with some apartments on the second floor, and 10 apartments per floor on the remaining floors. Details of the apartments include 10-foot ceilings, colored concrete floors, and original beams restored and exposed. Retail spaces will be targeted at smaller businesses, with floor plans in the 600 to 700 square-foot range. In the middle building, they’d like to bring in a restaurant.
Horizon Partners is no stranger redeveloping buildings in the neighborhood. They own the Horizon Pacific Center (BCRA, INFOBLOX), Hunt Motttet Lofts, the El Gaucho/Melting Pot buildings and the Sandberg Building where DaVita is located.
