The parcels are currently zoned for 85 feet. No explanation given for how they're going so much higher.

I can only assume they'd be getting density bonus concessions as it's 100% affordable, but I'm not sure it would be sufficient to nearly double the allowed height. From a quick scan of the municipal code, the most I could see for a density bonus would be an extra 3 stories. However, we have seen other projects in the city go higher above base zoning than that, so there may be other more convoluted mechanisms at play.

Good news. Newsom has officially signed #AB2097, eliminating parking requirements for new housing projects within a half mile of public transit stops *statewide*!

This is what actual leadership on housing affordability and climate policy looks like!

^ Looks very nice. I like the use of different levels offering various vantage points throughout the campus.

San Francisco’s Housing Pipeline Hits a New High
October 4, 2022



The total number of units in San Francisco’s housing pipeline, including affordable units that are slated to be rebuilt, hit a record high of over 80,000 in the first quarter of this year, according to our queries of Planning’s databases as mapped and distributed above.

In addition to around 8,000 units which are under construction across the city, units which should be ready for occupancy within the next year or two, there are now nearly 11,000 units which have been fully approved, including building permits, but which have yet to break ground, along with another 11,000 units which have been fully approved by Planning and building permits are in the works and over 40,000 units which have been approved/entitled by Planning but building permits have yet to be requested, which is 30 percent higher than average over the past decade.

New Building Permits Approved, Updated Design For 730 Stanyan Street In San Francisco



BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:30 AM ON OCTOBER 5, 2022

New building permits have been approved by the Planning Department for the construction of an eight-story affordable infill at 730 Stanyan Street in Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco. The project is expected to cost just over a million dollars per unit, costing nearly $166 million. Along with the approval, the Board of Supervisors has passed a resolution supporting potential state funding for the project, and new design plans have been revealed from OMA.

The proposal is a joint development by the Chinatown Community Development Center and the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation. Plans for 730 Stanyan Street have increased in size from 120 units across six floors to 160 units across eight floors, all to be 100% affordable housing for very low-income to low-income units.

Of the 160 units, 128 units will be for affordable family housing, 30 units will be for transitional age youth residents coming out of homelessness, and two will be for on-site managers. Twenty of the family units will also be dedicated to unhoused families. Unit sizes will vary, with 35 studios, 43 one-bedrooms, 42 two-bedrooms, and 40 three-bedrooms.

The ground floor will include a rounded public plaza around the main lobby entrance and the community room. Two courtyards in the rear lot will provide further common open space for residents on the first level, with one dedicated to childcare. The rest of the ground floor will include a childcare facility, several public community facilities, and a cafe.

On the fifth floor, a public terrace will overlook the corner of Stanyan and Haight Street, looking toward Golden Gate Park. Another deck along Waller Street will create an urban agriculture terrace, giving residents the chance to work with gardening on-site. The rooftop will be capped by a green roof with native meadow grass.

Stoked to see 1850 finally move forward! I thought it was going to be BMR residential for some reason, though...

It got bought earlier this year and the new owners decided on lab space, before that it was going to be non-profit office space; think there were other ideas floated including condos before that

Nice to see some new and unique public space with an interesting history added to the Waterfront.

Historic Klamath Ferry Boat Docked On Pier 9, San Francisco



BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:30 AM ON OCTOBER 24, 2022

The Klamath Ferry Boat has been secured to Pier 9, opening the latest addition to San Francisco’s Northern Waterfront neighborhood along the Embarcadero. The nearly one-hundred-year-old decommissioned passenger ship is now open as a public gathering space and the new headquarters for the Bay Area Council.

The history of the San Francisco ferryboats, as told by the Bay Area Council, stretched from 1850 to 1939, during which 120 boats operated across the Bay Area. These boats helped move passengers, cars, trains, horses, livestock, agricultural products, and more. The demise of the former Ferryboat system came with the completion of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, and later the remaining ferry systems would be sunk by the Richmond–San Rafael bridge. Of the 120 ferryboats from this era, only five boats are known to remain.

Small update on the now-finished 681 Florida aka "Casa Adelante" in the Mission.



Looks just about as good as I imagined it would. Appreciate you, Mithune.

Regardless of aesthetics, it's nice to see a complete block and quite a bit of potential for street-level activation.

p.s. 2750 19TH STREET, right around the corner, has yet to start hanging the cladding but feels like it'll fit nicely in the zone.

^ Not bad! It's not aesthetically pleasing but its not offensive either.

Of course the primary benefit is that it is 130 units and 100% affordable (24-85% AMI) with zero included parking spaces.

The City could use a whole lot more of these affordable, pedestrian and transit oriented infill projects.

Rebar for the core is up to the 2nd floor.

10/31/2022 - as the Skyscraper site for 1554 Market St. is closed I will give an update here - Went by today & see a notice from the city to remove grafitti. The twin condo towers remain unoccupied. Looks to me like this development will be auctioned at a bankruptcy sale. The San Francisco Chronicle had an article about this one. People had put deposits down when interest rates were low & they are now hurt badly & may have lost the deposit.
