Newport Beach-based City Ventures is proposing 32 townhome-style condominiums; 5,600 square feet of commercial space broken up into 10 shops that could incubate small businesses; and a 2,000-square-foot commercial or community building at 1835 Oak Street. The 2.58-acre site, which housed a glass manufacturing business until 2012, sits between Clement Street and Buena Vista Avenue about a block from Park Street.
