Today the Planning Commission will vote on the newest residential tower to hit SoMa at 325 Fremont. As you recall, the design by Handel Architects had to part with its prior approvals after adding 48 units and growing by 50 feet. The latest version stacks up to 25 stories and a total of 118 units (that's 48 two-beds, 47 one-beds, and 23 studios), 41 parking spaces, 105 bike spaces, and 4,686 square feet of open space with a roof deck, plus private balconies. Instead of below-market-rate units on site, they're going with the in-lieu affordable housing fee (around $6.8M, if you're keeping track). There's not a ton of noise one way or the other on this project, but the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition has voiced their support. Planning staff is recommending approval, so this seems to be a drama-free project.
