K Street Drama, Act 6000

Though in a recent post it appeared things were looking up—and time will tell on the mermaid/merman infusion—this new plan, as reported by Sacramento Press, appears to be another act in the ongoing drama.

An excerpt.

“D & S Development, Inc., and CFY Development Inc. – led by David Miry and his son, Bay Miry, and Cyrus Youssefi and his son, Ali Youssefi – are currently working with the city on plans to redevelop the south side of the 700 block of K Street.

“The developers propose a mix of adaptive reuse and new construction that would include a music club, four restaurants with bars and other retail, second-floor apartments, sidewalk patio seating, rooftop decks for dining and residential use, and a six-story apartment building on the alley.

“The developers also plan to restore historic brick and wood storefronts facing K Street.

“City staffers expect to bring the project back before the Preservation and Planning commissions and the City Council for final action in May and June. The developers hope to start construction in the fourth quarter of 2011 and open the completed development two and a half years from now.”
