The Monarch in Chinatown Mixed-Use Housing
The Chinatown project will be a high density, 4-story workforce mixed-use development with approximately 4,700 s.f. of ground floor retail space. The Chinatown project will have (56) affordable workforce housing units, and (1) manager’s unit. The site consists of 0.60 acres of vacant land at 1101 F Street, Fresno, CA 93706. There will be (35) podium parking spaces located on the ground floor of the development. There will also be on-street parking available along F Street and Mariposa Street.
The site is located within one block of the proposed High Speed Rail Station. It will reduce GHG emissions by providing transit passes for residents for (5) years. The Active Street Improvements of F Street from Fresno to Ventura will improve resident access to (2) Major Transit Stops in Chinatown (Fresno & China Alley, F & Tulare). This project also includes the improvement to China Alley, which connects local businesses in the area.
This project provides much needed affordable housing, encourages use of mass transit and pedestrian walkways, provides new retail space to stimulate economic development, and brings new residents to the Chinatown Area.
