SoMa Rising: Designs For Nine-Stories And More Housing On Harrison
July 2, 2014

The plans to raze Ed’s Autohaus at 768 Harrison Street and construct a nine-story building with 26 residential units, nearly 5,000 square feet of office space, and a 600 square foot retail space adjacent to Cubix are making their way through planning.

As designed by Ian Birchall and Associates, the development’s twenty one-bedrooms would average about 600 square feet apiece while the two-bedrooms would be around double that size. The office space would front Rizal Street with a courtyard between the building’s two masses.

And in terms of parking, the project includes thirty spaces for bicycles and none for cars as proposed.

This will be less than half a block off 4th St where the Central Subway will run and it will be only a bit more than a block from the Moscone Station. That's pretty prime turf. 9 floors may be a bit short (though it replaces something 2 floors and matches other structures on the block--it'll be in "context" as the SFPD likes to put it).
