The Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to allow the proposed 550-foot tower and Mexican Museum to rise at 706 Mission Street is slated to be reviewed and potentially certified by San Francisco’s Planning Commission in two weeks.
The proposed project consists of the construction of the 47-story tower and the restoration and rehabilitation of the adjacent Aronson Building which would be attached. The existing Jessie Square Garage would provide 260 spaces for tower residents.
The tower would contain up to 43 floors of condos and four floors for the museum. The Aronson Building would contain retail/restaurant space on the ground floor, museum space on the second and third floors, and either offices or condos on floors four through ten:
As plugged-in people know, the parcel is currently zoned for 400-feet and the project will require a zoning map amendment to see its full potential versus being cut short.
And in addition to the issue of new shadows on downtown public open spaces, opponents of the tower as proposed, most of whom reside and park at the adjacent Four Seasons Residences, cite increased traffic and congestion concerns.
As always, we’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
