Avant Housing’s proposed 900 Folsom/260 Fifth Street project is back in front of San Francisco’s Planning Commission this Thursday for certification and with a preliminary recommendation to approve (with conditions).
Once again, 448 new residential units (68 BMR), 9,500 square feet of commercial space, and 323 parking spaces as proposed. And unlike with 555 Fulton, as long as one of the conditions doesn’t become a return to the building’s original design, we’ll approve as well.
UPDATE: By way of a plugged-in tipster, the rendering above (click to enlarge) has been updated to reflect a few recent tweaks (“reconfigured rooftop element, modulation of cornice line at Folsom Street, balconies at western end of project on Folsom, and slightly modified panel coloring at 5th street”) versus the design as rendered in January:
