San Francisco, CA 94102

The Arquitectonica-designed 1960 Market Street, which was approved by the Board of Supes back in 2009, is a mixed‐use building with 115 residential units over ground floor commercial and a garage. Things were delayed through late 2010, when the conditions of approval were revised to include housing the required below market rate units off‐site rather than on‐site and removing the subterranean part of the parking garage. Construction began in July, but estimated completion is unknown.

The Stanley Saitowitz-designed 5-9 story, 49-unit project was supposed to be heard back on August 9, but was continued when some ground floor height issues weren't in compliance. It was finally approved in September, and is expected to begin construction soon.

Also designed by Envelope A+D, the building design is comprised of several "basic cellular units," which can stay separate or aggregate to create larger units, either horizontally or vertically (up to four units).
