Last year, the owner of 1501 15th St, at the southwest corner of 15th and South Van Ness in the Mission, sought approval with the city to build a two-story building on the site of his gas station, converting his business into a car wash. The Planning Commission handed down a denial, and perhaps it was shortly thereafter that plans drastically changed for the site— perhaps into what we have above! The designs, by the ever prevalent Stanley Saitowitz, are for a six-story, 40-unit building with 32 parking spaces, and look something like the design for 130 Dore in SoMa, but with more windows. Recall if you may that Saitowitz has also designed a six-story residential building for the corner of Mission and 17th. At this rate, the Mission might start resembling SoMa more and more.
