Developers of a six-story, 50-unit housing complex on Adeline are moving forward with plans, having bought the project property and won a lawsuit brought by neighbors last year.
It was touch-and-go for a while there, but a council majority voted in favor Tuesday night of 50 new units on Adeline Street.
There are at least six reasons the proposed development at 2902 Adeline should be sent back to Berkeley’s Zoning Adjustments Board.
With recent decisions, Mayor Arreguín and the majority of the City Council have demonstrated their commitment to a public process that consists of backroom deals and disregard for the rule of law.
In a bizarre twist both sides said was unforeseen, a deal more than a year in the making stalled out Tuesday night prior to a council vote that was expected to bring 50 new units to Berkeley.
Tuesday night, council will hear an appeal by local residents fighting a 6-story building in South Berkeley.
