Long-Delayed 69-Unit Condo Building Now Rising on Franklin

New, 2 comments

Way back in 2008, a condo building was approved on the corner of Franklin and Bush over the objections of preservationists who argued that the building should be saved due to its role in the city's auto row historic district. The original building on the site, most recently home to luxury car dealership Cars Dawydiak, was designed by architect Frederick Meyer in the early 20th century. After winning approval, however, the building was put on hold as the economy tanked. It was revived last year with demolition of the old building, and construction is now moving right along with an expected completion date of Summer 2015. A rendering of the building's exterior shows that homage has been paid to Meyer's original building in the first few floors of the new structure's facade. It is set to hit 13 stories with parking and retail at the bottom. · Developer Wins Battle vs. Preservationists [SF Business Times]
