A detailed proposal and plans to transform the deteriorating and fire-bombed former Police Station at 2300 Third Street into a new Dogpatch Hub and community center have been drafted. And UCSF is in line to provide a $4.2 million “gift” to get the projected 36-month project started.
Deemed a surplus site by the City, the property is technically required to be prioritized for the development of affordable housing. But local residents and Friends of The Dogpatch Hub (FoDH) have enlisted the support of their Supervisor, City Attorney Dennis Herrera and the Police Department, and are pushing for the “Hub” instead.
And keep in mind that UCSF’s gift is dependent upon its proposed projects in Dogpatch, including the 550-unit building at 600 Minnesota, the new Psych Center at 2130 Third and the future redevelopment of 777 Mariposa Street (the plans for which are “TBD”), “proceeding unencumbered with…no CEQA litigation.”
