Berkeley’s California Theatre, a beloved 107-year-old movie theater that permanently closed in October, could be made into a 15-story mixed-use apartment building catering to students.
Rhode Island-based developer Gilbane submitted a pre-application on July 28 that proposed turning the building into 214 housing units with a live theater space, the San Francisco Business Times reported. The project would be “student-oriented,” with 22 units reserved for households making between 30% and 50% of the area’s median income.
