1028 Market Street Site

Plans to raze the Mid-Market Hollywood Billiards building at 1028 Market Street and construct a 13-story building with 186 dwelling units have been submitted to San Francisco’s Planning Department for review.  The existing two-story building has sat vacant and boarded-up since 2008.

As designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz, the proposed building would rise to a height of 120 feet along both Golden Gate Avenue and Market Street with 12 floor of residential over five ground floor retail spaces and underground parking for 43 cars.

The proposed units, a range of studios to two-bedrooms, would average a little over 630 square feet apiece.

And as plugged-in people know, the adjacent parcel to the west of 1028 Market Street is being developed by Shorenstein, with plans for a 300-unit building designed by Arquitectonica to rise.

    More institutional investors jumping in (literally) by the day = RE market that is “all good”

    Great…..another terrible SCB designed building for our city. Did they get chased out of Chicago? They have turned into the 1990s Heller Manus.

      Great…. someone already whining about more housing.

        The complaint wasn’t about more housing construction, it was about the quality of the design.

          So definitely let’s not build more housing unless it’s a super fancy design.

      I couldn’t care less. Cheaper architects probably mean cheaper [actually affordable] housing.

    HB looks of historical significance if you ask me

    Gentrification! Where are the street kids gonna sell/buy their wares now?

    These new projects on that stretch are of major significance. This is the very rapid reclaiming of the street from the thugs and the homeless. New construction around VN, Polk, Trinity, SOMA Grand, and now this one on the no-mans-land aka 6th to 7th. Yeah!

      Countdown to the new tenants forcing the Warfield to shut down because it’s too loud.

    Great news for the city and sanity. I’ll withhold judgment on the design until we get something we can actually judge.

    But…but….if we keep adding productive citizens to this neighborhood, District 6 might stop electing stellar Supervisors like Jane Kim and Chris Daly. This is horrible!! 🙂

      I look forward to the day when owner resident voters exceed the tenant voters.

        I think that will be the next big story of politics in SF in the next 10 years.

    That’s one butt-ugly design. And way too short.

      Better than ugly and tall.

    At last, at last, at last …. how long have we been waiting for some upgrading on this stretch of Market. With the renovation of the Renoir Hotel in the next block, and finally, perhaps a use of the Hibernia Bank building, this will become a decent looking area. As an owner of a unit in the 83 McAllister building, we surely have been waiting for this.
