The wood-and-concrete frame of a large mixed-use development is now rising at the corner of Carson Street and Avalon Boulevard.

The project, called Union South Bay, spans across an approximately 5.5-acre site near Carson City Hall.  Plans call for a pair of wood-frame apartment buildings that would contain a combined total of 357 residential units and 30,700 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  This includes a five-story structure fronting Avalon at the eastern side of the property, which will be wrapped around an interior parking structure, and a podium-type building fronting Carson.

Steinberg Hart is designing the project, which will incorporate a 10,000-square-foot public plaza at its main intersection, as well as private amenities such as a fitness center, a courtyard, and a rooftop deck.  Architectural plans also indicate that the Union development's design team also includes Tate Snyder Kimsey and Hongjoo Kim Landscape Architects.

West Hollywood-based Faring is the developer of the Union South Bay, along with the Arizona-based Wolff Company. 

Faring's portfolio also includes the French Market and Robertson Lane developments in its hometown, as well as a two-building apartment complex planned for Sunset Boulevard.
