New Project: Skyline View Apartments

A new apartment project, Skyline View Apartments, is under construction in the Lower Highland district at 2828 Zuni.

The project covers almost the full block face along the east side of Zuni between W. 28th and W. 29th Avenue, stopping just short of the W. 29th Avenue intersection. Two small houses are retained at the north end of the site. The house right at the corner of W. 29th Avenue appears to be vacant and in disrepair, but for some reason was not included as part of the development. Here’s a GoogleEarth aerial where I’ve outlined the project site:

The project is being developed by Canwest, LLC and the architect is the Mulhern Group. Skyline View Apartment features 105 apartment units over a 129 space parking garage. The image below shows the west (Zuni) elevation of the building:


Here’s a photo of the site from a few months ago as construction was just getting started. The house at the corner, visible in the image below, is now surrounded by piles of construction dirt, and the underground parking level is fully excavated.

Skyline View Apartments will likely be completed by late 2013.

    I saw this the other week. I came to the conclusion that the contractor was using the house as an office, rather than renting a trailer office.

    Interesting that they didn’t acquire the lots facing 29th. Or is it that they acquired them but just didn’t incorporate the apartment plans into these lots? As the site sits right now, they appear to use the corner lot as a holding place for some massive dirt piles (sitting right against the house). The security fences also go around both of these properties so I wonder if the developer owns them but has plans for another project at a later date? Some retail would be nice for the residents of the 105 new apartments!

    I’ve been wondering about this project for a while–I live just a few blocks away, and am perplexed about why that house on the corner was not included in the project, especially since they’ve still been using the lot to bury the house in fill dirt! Maybe they acquired it late in the development, after plans were set?

    Regardless, this looks like it will fill in one of the most undeveloped blocks remaining in Lower Highlands, and continue the development moving south from the 32nd area down towards the Jefferson Park neighborhood.

    Looks incredibly boring. Glad to see some infill though!

    Ken – how do you think this will affect the single family homes that are located just east of this 5-story building, on Wyandot? Most of those are two-story.

    Also, there are a few surface level parking lots just slightly further east, between Wyandot and Vallejo – any thoughts on what may happen to those?
