Revised Heller Manus Design for 2198 Market Heads to the Planning Commission

New, 4 comments

Last October Curbed brought news of an 87-unit rental building planned for the current vacant lot at the northeast corner of Market and Sanchez. Preliminary designs by Heller Manus were scarce, but at the time neighborhood groups were unhappy that the project didn't include any on-site affordable housing. Fast forward to tomorrow, when a revised version of the project will come before the Planning Commission. The new design features a some much-desired exterior tweaks, as well as confirmation that the building will host 10 affordable units on-site. The building will be four stories facing Sanchez and six stories along Market, with 87 rental units (36 2BRs and 51 1BRs), 5,115 sq.ft. of ground floor commercial (part of which will be a TBD restaurant), 34 off-street parking spots, 89 bike spots, and rooftop open space. Since the site was identified for future development in the Market Octavia Plan and the project meets all the plan criteria, it doesn't need to go under it's own full environmental review. It's got support from the Housing Action Council and the Castro CBD, plus Planning Staff is recommending approval. We'll let you know how it turns out.
