The proposed development, which would rise from a sloping 5,600-square-foot site located at 970 N. Hoover Street, calls for the construction of a five-story edifice featuring 14 apartments above an at-grade parking garage.

Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit a larger structures than typically allowed by zoning rules. Two of the new studio and one-bedroom apartments would be set aside for rent by extremely low-income households in exchange for the incentives.

Archeon Group is designing 970 Hoover, which is depicted in renderings as a boxy podium-type building clad in stucco, concrete, and metal siding. A rooftop deck would cap the low-rise structure.
