Back in June, a preliminary proposal was filed with the Planning Department to demolish the Touchless Car Wash along Divisadero Street and replace it with two new residential buildings holding 152 units. Now, Hoodline has revealed some rather uninspiring initial renderings for the development from architects Solomon Cordwell Buenz, the firm behind buildings like One Rincon Hill. The blocky six-story building would have four retail storefronts on its ground level along Divisadero Street, and many of the apartments would include small, glassy balconies.
Most of the building's units would be 562-square foot one-bedrooms, a size that is small even for San Francisco. There would also be some 400-square-foot studios and 772-square-foot two-bedrooms. Residents looking for some extra space would have access to a ground floor courtyard, a second-floor terrace, and a roof deck. The development is still in its earliest stages, with no response yet from Planning to its proposal, meaning that these initial renderings and plans could all still change quite a bit before anything is actually built.
