As newly rendered below, plans to raze the two-story warehouse building and adjacent parking lot at 33 Norfolk Street and build a five-story residential building upon the Western SoMa site, plans which have been in the works since 2014, are closer to reality.
As designed by Levy Design Partners, the proposed development would yield 19 condos, which is ten (10) more than originally envisioned, and a two (2) car garage, while the previously proposed ground floor retail spaces have been eliminated from the plans.
Demolition and building permits for the project have already been requested. And a variance to allow for an elevated rear yard could be approved by San Francisco’s Zoning Administrator in two weeks time.
The elevated rear year would allow the ground floor of the residential development, which would contain two of its residential units and the building’s garage, to abut the rear property line of the parcel, on the other side of which Halcyon SF (a “dusk to dawn” nightclub featuring DJs and live shows) and Audio (a mid-sized dance club “designed by sound fanatics for sound fanatics”) currently sit along the 11th Street corridor.
