Archstone Fox Plaza's little brother, the 11-story mid-rise condo addition that would take the place of the short brown edge currently there, has cleared yet another hurdle, though it's not in the clear yet. According to City Insider, the Board of Supes unanimously rejected an environmental appeal that "warned of dangerous wind impact from the side-by-side towers." In fact, city planners said that two wind assessments predicted the "wind problem" might even be improved by the new addition. As noted last time, the building, developed by Archstone Smith and Presidio Development Partners, is planned to be 120 feet tall and have 250 residential units. Another hurdle on the horizon: an appeal of the Planning Commission's previous approval of the project.
