The parking lot at the northwest corner of 10th and Mission streets has been the site of multiple proposals dating back to 2004, but a new version of the project is in the works from the omnipresent Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation. Originally approved in 2009 but stalled a year later "due to lack of city financing," TNDC has spruced up the design and will bring it before the Planning Commission tomorrow. To satisfy the off-site below-market-rate units requirement for the previously approved project at 201 Folsom Street, 1400 Mission Street will be 190 units of affordable housing over approximately 4,350 sq.ft. of ground floor retail space with 42 off-street parking spaces. The 150 foot, 10-to-15-story building is the latest iteration of a larger project (originally including the lot that is now home to 1411 Market Street) that had its EIR certified back in 2004, but since this is basically a smaller version, it doesn't require a whole new EIR. The new design by Brand + Allen Architects will house 4 studios, 66 one-bedrooms, 102 two-bedrooms, and 18 three-bedrooms. So far there hasn't been any public comment one way or the other, and Planning Department staff are recommending approval. Could this project actually break ground soon?
