As we reported earlier this week, the Planning Commission’s vote to certify the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and allow the development of 935-965 Market Street to move forward and become “CityPlace” was appealed and is currently scheduled to be reviewed by the Board of Supervisors on September 7.
The named appellants are Liveable City, Walk San Francisco, and Arthur D. Levy.
The nineteen (19) stated points of appeal include: impacts on traffic, bicycle/pedestrian safety, and transit circulation; off-street parking and loading exceptions; a lack of context within “the historic and visual character of the block in which the project is located, including…the Market Street Theater and Loft District and the Uptown Tenderloin National Register Historic District;” and an emphasis on the St. Francis Theater (which has been shuttered since May 2001) as an endangered historical resource, it would be razed to make way for CityPlace to rise.
And the full text of the appeal:
As always, we’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
