The proposed project would demolish a two‐plus‐story‐over‐basement, 30‐foot‐tall building that contains about 8,000 square feet of office space and 17,000 square feet of former commercial film studio space….In its place, the project sponsor proposes to retain the existing basement and construct a 15‐story, approximately 152‐foot‐tall building.
The upper nine floors of the hotel would be set back approximately 40 feet from the Mission Street property line. These upper floors would overlook a vegetated roof at the seventh floor planted in drought‐tolerant California native grasses. Bay windows would extend up to the thirteenth level. The proportions and detailing of the fenestration in the base along Mission Street would be repeated in the windows of the upper floors.
As proposed, 72,000 square feet of hotel space with 172 rooms over 3,240 square feet of ground‐floor retail. And all without any off-street parking (nor even valet as envisioned).
