Development on Broad St. Corridor Broad Street is one of the largest commercial/industrial corridors in the city, but future efforts are planning on making it more residential and pedestrian friendly. The General Plan Housing Element identifies the site as a good location for housing based on proximity to the amenities discussed earlier. Sanctuary 6 would not be the only residential development along Broad Street. Next door to the site, KTGY Architects are developing the Ironworks Apartments. Ironworks is a 46-unit, 100% affordable development, which is set to break ground soon. This project will share a driveway with Sanctuary 6, known as the Broad Street Alley, establishing a shared community between the two projects. Beyond the adjacent lots, the City has the South Broad Street Area Plan. Our site is not within the Plan’s jurisdiction,

but we fulfilled parts of the vision in the hopes of creating a cohesive Downtown to South Broad Street corridor. The plan calls for increased residential use and walkability. The plan also wants mixed-use residential and commercial use on Broad St. so Sanctuary 6 will be one of many mixed-use projects along the corridor. Architecturally, the project fits with the plan’s “railroad style” with angled roofs and choice of materials. By fitting in with the greater context of the Broad St. corridor, Sanctuary 6 will be a part of the San Luis Obispo community. Site Ownership The Sanctuary 6 parcel is owned by the team’s project development partner: People’s Self Help Housing. This eliminates any barriers for property acquisition, and the project is able to be considered as proposed.
