1415 Mission Site
In contract since early last year, the 1415 Mission Street site on which a 14-story building designed by Heller Manus is approved to rise has sold to the Martin Building Company.

The site at the corner of 10th Street is fully entitled for 117 residential units (studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms) and underground parking for 46 (self) or 101 (valet). We expect to soon see a building permit.

    101 parking spots, eh? I’ll hold off my comments on the architecture of the proposed structure. As my Mama used to say, “If you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all.”

    Just 46 spot of self parking. Looks like the spot is currently use for parking. Is this suppose to be an option to still provide some public parking by packing it tight for valet?

    Nice to see more units in this area as it should also help with the turnaround of mid-Market. I’ll follow Mark’s lead regarding commenting on aesthetics.
    Interesting that the building is sited so those two billboards to the right can remain in place. I wonder about the taller billboard on the left though. What does a developer have to go through to block a billboard’s “view easement” ?

    “Interesting that the building is sited so those two billboards to the right can remain in place.”
    The building is not sited to preserve the billboards. There’s another empty lot right there that’s separate from 1415 Mission, which is why the building doesn’t extend all the way to that neighboring building with the billboards on it. That’s why you can still see the billboards.

    Thanks cbf. I misread the parcel map. Would still like to know what it costs to obliterate a billboard.

    i used to work down the street from here, right next door is a medicinal marijuana dispensary and the alley next to that is shall we say a bit unsavory. i personally would not want to live here.

    Ok, I’ll say it: perhaps they’ll bring in another architect to enhance the design as has fortunately happened on several other Heller Manus projects in recent years.

    Turin, please don’t just say it — just say it *LOUDER*.
    In fact, why not we open our hermetically sealed & cheaply manufactured pseudo-windows, say, not unlike like Peter Finch in the movie about blandness called “Network,” and S C R E A M it over the soulless rooftops of ‘SO-WAH?’ (previously SOMA) and Mission Bleh (Previously Mission Bay).
    Get some followers together and let’s camp out in front of the ‘Plan Inc.’ department and shame it staffers and they squiggle into their work nest.
    Let’s get angry, Turin. Because SF is being buried beneath a shroud of ugly.

    I wish these places would give up the parking spaces entirely and just have a lot of retail instead. There are rarely parking spaces under buildings in Manhattan and people get along just fine. This intersection is a block away from the Muni and a dozen bus lines. About the architecture–bland is par for the course in SoMa now, but anything is better than a parking lot.

    Pretty sure Arquitectonica is doing a redesign.

    Is Heller-Manus just a permitting shop these days? How many of their large projects get re-skinned? More than a little demeaning, but you still get the bucks.

    Actually, I love that Heller has The Infinity on its web site as one of its projects, with a slight mention of Arquitectonica.
    Of course, it’s the only interesting building in their portfolio. This is what’s known as padding your resume’.

    I agree with Milkshake’s sentiment that it is nice to see more units in this area.
    Hopefully they’ll pull permits and go ahead and build it as planned, but if they are in fact hiring another firm for a tweak of the design, I further hope they will not go back for re-approval after a re-do if the plans in order to build micro-apartments.

    Does anyone know if these will be for sale or rent?

  17. Posted by bg

    martin building company usually sells units, so these are probably for sale
