Berkeleyside’s updated interactive map (originally published in March) shows the locations of about 5,800 housing units built, under construction, approved and proposed in Berkeley as of August 2019.
Since 2014, there have been 1,022 housing units built, across 17 projects, according to the latest “housing pipeline” report issued by the city. About 842 units, in 15 projects, are expected to be done by 2020.
To the potential dismay of cooks and chefs, Berkeley City Council is set to discuss an ordinance that would prohibit natural gas infrastructure in new buildings.
In 2013, the Rent Board voted that a “natural person” must own a golden duplex to keep it exempt from rent control. That has caused issues for owners who put their homes in revocable living trusts.
The property has hosted everything from a mattress store to an overflowing artist warehouse. Now, as its owners prepare to sell the site, its future is in question.
