I'd like to know more about this.

Bonus-Sized Polk Street Project Slated for Approval
February 10, 2020

. . . plans are now being drawn for an 8-story building to rise up to 87 feet in height on the 1567 California Street site (of the current Out of the Closet thrift store), with 100 units of housing over 10,000 square feet of retail space and zero (0) off-street parking spots.

In order to surpass the current 80-foot height and 93-unit density limits for the site as zoned, the project team is planning to invoke California’s Density Bonus Law for the seven extra feet and units and waive the bulk building restrictions (which resulted in the terraced 7-story design above) and parking requirements (which in principle would require a garage for 100 cars) for the site.

Since further refined by David Baker Architects to yield 100 apartments (a mix of 20 studios, 29 one-bedrooms, 39 twos, and 12 threes) over 9,800 square feet of ground floor commercial space and a storage room for 101 bikes, the bonus plans for the 1567 California Street project are slated to be approved this week and building permits for the project have been requested

(Now)


(Project)

Storage for 101 bikes in a 100 unit building is just political suck-up of course, but it's how you have to play the game in SF these days and, in this case, it worked.

I wonder if any of those 101 bike parking spots can/will be shared bikes? I doubt every resident will park a bike downstairs.

the one on Folsom and Hawthorne getting a makeover:





speaking of Folsom makeovers, I had thought the redo of Folsom itself would have been farther along by now (I hadn't been by in a while), but big bits of it still look like this:

Well, let's see: How long has most of Van Ness looked like that?

If so, it has a thead at http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=230149 but clearly needs to be in the construction section rather than the proposals section.

Here is a list of San Francisco "proposals". If any of these are under construction and you have information or photos to post (or have posted), please post to the relevant threads and if any are actually under construction, let someone know.

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/sear...archid=2089186

And here is a list of building threads in the construction section:

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/sear...archid=2089194

I admit I can't keep track.

as viewguy pointed to, it's across Folsom from that - the low building in the image. the building that that proposal would replace has a development meeting notification posted on it (at least it used to), but I didn't notice any activity yet

ferry plaza

at the new ferry plaza, they've reconstructed the Gate E area (raised a bit for projected sea-level rise), tho it's not open yet





looking back the other way



the plaza itself is coming along

here's Serif, getting taller all the time



I think I walked past a few of the SOMA projects that Jerry had pointed out in a photo taken from his place recently...

the one at Sixth and Shipley, just south of Folsom





at the Fifth St end of Shipley, looks like maybe at least site prep has started on this one



a little one called the 'Quinn' on Eighth St



1140 Harrison



pretty sure this is 975 Bryant

timbad - yes, you are correct, it is 975 Bryant, a very large project.
A nice update of projects. Thanks. One of several construction sites that I see from my window in the south of Market area.

Rebuild Potrero

demolition for Phase 2 of Rebuild Potrero is underway

as a reminder, Phase 1 was the construction of this building:



into it, many of the residents moved from across Connecticut St to the west, and those buildings are the ones coming down in Phase 2, to be replaced by one block of affordable and one block of market-rate units



closer up



looking south down Connecticut, with Phase 1 on left and Phase 2 demo on right



moving over a bit



angling SW



good information on the status of many of the City's affordable projects such as this one is here (the Rebuild Potrero info starts on page 13)

The blue lighting on Fox Plaza looks slick.
