One Franciscan Motel building in Bayview Heights: headed for a takedown.
Citizens Housing Corporation, nonprofit developer of such architecturally praised affordable developments as the Folsom Dore Apartments, has the motel's spot in mind for another project in its pipeline. This one, a four-story building that'll have 73 homes and 21 parking spaces, is also designed by architect/affordable guru David Baker. The project goes to the Planning Commission tomorrow. In the meantime, Baker's site has a jazzy tune for us.

UPDATE: As noted below by David Baker, the project is being led by Michael Simmons Property Development in partnership with Mercy Housing.
