Currently, 996 Mission St. is a squat two-story building on the corner of Sixth Street that houses a sex shop, a few takeout places, and a residential hotel. But plans have been submitted to raze the building and replace it with an eight-story tourist hotel with ground floor retail and 105 guest rooms. According to the preliminary application, the residential hotel units will be relocated down the street to 1011-1019 Howard Street, another residential hotel.
Early plans for the new building show a bar and restaurant, and two additional spaces for retail on the ground floor. There's additional retail space along with a gym and a meeting room in the basement. A first floor mezzanine would be open to the level below, while the eighth floor, made up mostly of rooms, would have a small roof garden. The plans are just preliminary at this point.
