Rideshare company Lyft moved into its headquarters at 2300 Harrison in late 2014 prior to moving into fancier digs in China Basin. After Lyft went east, building owners at their former pad decided to spruce up the place, proposing a five-story expansion with retail, offices, and, nine new townhouses.
As SocketSite notes, the new addition, for which the principles filed paperwork this week, would be nearly as large as the existing three-story building at over 67,000 square feet (basement included).
Construction of a 5-story-over-basement building, including below-grade parking level, one story of mixed use and parking, two stories of office use and two stories of residential use. The new addition will be constructed over existing surface parking lot area, immediately adjacent to the existing 3-story building.
The bulk of the new space (26,600 square feet) would be turned into offices, but the top two floors would convert into 15,400 square feet of residential space in the form of nine two- to three-bedroom town homes.
A garage would replace some of the missing parking, although the plan would still result in a net loss of 25 spaces.
Lyft signed a lease on a larger Mission Bay site last year in the former home of Dropbox and SF Weekly. But the company still has a toehold in the Harrison Street building, as a spokesperson tells Curbed SF they’ve since subleased their old offices there.
