The site of the former Home restaurant could become a 64-unit apartment building if a new proposal from the developer who built Linea condos just down the street is successful. The restaurant has been vacant for several years since Home closed, although Chipotle attempted to move in last year and was rejected based on formula retail regulations. The site at 2100 Market Street is directly next to the Church Street Muni stop. Although the potential developer, Brian Spiers Development, has been successful with condos at Linea, plans are for the new site to be rentals.
The proposed building would rise seven stories and be designed by Arquitectonica, the same firm responsible for Linea. It would include mostly 2-bedroom units, with some studios and 1-bedrooms. They would start at 500 square feet and max out at 1,000. There would be 4,700 square feet of retail, a bike parking spot for each apartment and a rooftop terrace.
