Market Street Site Zoned For 400-Foot Tower In Play

January 23, 2014

Sitting on a prime corner parcel that was partially up-zoned for development up to 400 feet in height as part of San Francisco's Market & Octavia Plan, the Boas family is preparing to sell the two-story Honda dealership at the intersection of Market and South Van Ness Ave.

The potential 400-foot tower would be built on the southern portion of the triangular parcel with the Market Street frontage rising up to 120 feet in height. As the parcel's development was envisioned by Brand + Allen back in 2007:

Exclusive first look: Two 400-foot S.F. towers land at prime Mid-Market spot

Developer Crescent Heights took the first official step Wednesday toward getting approvals for two 400-foot towers that would bring 767 units to the corner of Market Street and Van Ness Avenue.

After buying the Honda dealership site last summer, Crescent Heights’ preliminary proposal for 10 South Van Ness represents just what the Market-Octavia Plan allows the developer to build. It’ll likely be months until more specific plans for ground-floor uses and affordable housing plans get revealed.

The filing means that Crescent Heights is on its way to start building next year if it gets approvals, joining the herd of major housing developments that will transform the Mid-Market area. Those already in the pipeline include Build Inc.’s 37-story tower One Oak, Related California’s tower on top of the Goodwill site at Mission and South Van Ness Streets, and the Emerald Fund’s trio of projects.

Some of the area’s major projects are on properties that got major height increases at the end of last decade in the Van Ness and Market Downtown Residential Special Use District, which surrounds the Van Ness Muni station.

“That is supposed to be this next great area of high-density development in a city that’s starving for housing in lieu of suburban sprawl. You want to build high-density along transit corridors,” Adam Tartakovsky, Crescent Heights’ vice president of acquisitions and development, told me last month . . . .

Heights’ complex includes a million square feet overall, including 20,400 square feet for retail and 20,000 square feet for lobby and amenity space.

Crescent Heights’ premier project in the city, Nema, sits about a block away . . . .

Plans also include a public open space in an empty lot in between Market and Otis streets, behind the Civic Center Hotel that houses single-room-occupancy residents.

. . . Handel Architects is on tap to design the building, but plans didn’t include renderings.

The national developer is also building a 400-foot Rincon Hill highrise called Jasper . . . .
