MARKET-OCTAVIA - The Stanley Saitowitz-designed 8 Octavia is back before the Planning Commission, hoping to finally get its Conditional Use Authorization approved. The 5-9 story, 49-unit project was supposed to be heard back on August 9, but was continued when some ground floor height issues weren't in compliance. A bunch of neighbors were on hand in August to oppose the project, so there should be some heated public testimony. [SF Planning/Curbed SF]

CHINATOWN - Also up for approval is the Chinatown Transit Subway Station entrance at Stockton and Washington Streets. The majority of the station, including the subway tube and platforms, will be located underground with a one-story entrance building at street level. A public art installation will wrap around the building cornice, and the flat roof could potentially house more development or a park/public open space in the future. [SF Planning]

UPPER MARKET - 2175 Market is a project to demolish an existing gas station and construct a new 65-foot-tall, six-story mixed-use building containing 88 rental units and 7,300 square feet of ground floor retail with a restaurant, with 44 underground parking spots. The building at Market and 15th Streets would have 34 two bedroom units and 54 junior one-bedrooms, and is already supported by The Merchants of Upper Market and Castro. [SF Planning]
