http://sf.curbed.com/archives/2014/...alled_mission_condos_up_for_approval.php#moreThe long-delayed condo project at 490 South Van Ness will finally get its shot at approvals at tomorrow's Planning Commission hearing . . . . the effort to turn an old gas station site into a seven-story building with 72 condo units has been hung up with problems over the past four years, including compatibility issues with the adjacent landmark Redstone Building and soil contamination. The proposed project from Forum Design and Smith + Smith Landscape will have 42 2BRs and 30 1BRs with 655 sq.ft. of ground-floor retail, 48 parking spots, 83 bike spots, courtyards, and a roof deck . . . . Planning staff decided the project meets the Eastern Neighborhoods Plan and separate review isn't required.
