363 6th Street Site

Approved for the development of 104 apartments last year, the 363 6th Street site upon which the former bondage dungeon turned City Life Church building currently sits, a block away from the EndUp and across the street from another eight-story development that’s in the works, has just hit the market listed by CBRE for $18 million or roughly $173,000 per entitled unit.

Last year, the City of San Francisco agreed to pay $18.5 million for the former “Quality Tune-Up” site at 490 South Van Ness Avenue in the Mission, or roughly $257,000 per entitled unit with the potential for adding a couple of floors.

    Major yawn in terms of design. But, I don’t have to live there. Go ahead and build it.

    Only eight-story??? If they can dump 400 foot towers on South Van Ness and Mission they can double the height here.

    The End Up probably doesn’t have a lot of time left. I’m sure it will be sold soon enough.

        It’s a drug den with a ton of soul. 40+ years as a uniquely SF institution for underground dance music and gay culture, one of the few remaining places with a cabaret license. It doesn’t have quite the soul (or decadence and seediness) that it had with the previous owner, but it’s still a cultural landmark if ever there was one… it’s even in Tales of the City.

        If there’s a textbook definition of soulless, it would be this project.

          drugs make people soulless, and soulless people use drugs (possibly with exception of marijuana). i would love to see end up levelled for a more positive development

    Hooray for this development. It is not great design but it is pleasant enough and a considerable improvement from what is there now. I live one block away and welcome it wholeheartedly if it is market rate housing. The area is overburdened with low income housing already.

    Permit was approved last month. Apparently it may actually break ground. As someone working four blocks from here, hooray for that. More homes that are modestly sized (smallish and they squeezed 9 floors into 85′ height instead of the usual 8) = good.
