The Giant Value store is turning into a giant pile of rubble as Alamo Draft House begins work on its combination new condo/theater conversion plan of the historic Mission Theater, approved in January. The residential portion of the project will be an 85-foot, 8-story mixed-use building (the second tallest in the Mission) with 114 units over ground-floor retail and 89 parking spaces. The Kwan Henmi design is intended to weave "the project tightly into the existing vibrant urban fabric" as well as "bring individuality to the building and dwelling units." The conversion of the existing Mission Theater will create a 348-seat main theater, as well as 4 smaller screening rooms, a restaurant and a bar/lounge.
