Once slated to become “The Sterling of San Francisco,” an eight-story, 62-unit senior living community, the latest designs for 1800 Van Ness at Clay call for an eight-story, 94-unit mixed-use building over 95 parking spaces and 4,900 square feet of commercial space and a four-story, 4-unit residential building with 4 parking spaces on Washington.

As proposed, the development will yield 1 studio, 44 one-bedrooms, 51 two-bedrooms and 2 three-bedrooms. And by way of negotiations with the Middle Polk Neighborhood Association, and in exchange for their support, 15 of the units will be Below Market Rate and parking for 41 bikes and at least three car share vehicles will be included on-site.
