Chinatown Mega-Project Being Considered

China building planning

Downtown-based Evoq Properties, best known for owning Alameda Square, is eyeing a mega-project in Chinatown.

The developer has proposed two options for three parcels adjacent to the Chinatown Gold Line stop, according to documents filed with the City Planning Department.

One plan for the project dubbed College Station, at 924 N. Spring St., calls for two towers, up to 20 stories, with 500 residential units and approximately 19,800 square feet of ground-floor retail space on the first parcel. The second plot would hold 100 affordable senior housing units spread across multiple four-story buildings and a 20,000-square-foot market, and the final parcel would have an eight-story building with 80 live-work lofts. The development would include 1,054 parking spaces.
