248-252 9th Street Design

The construction of a five-story building with 15 new apartments over 3,100 square feet of ground floor commercial/restaurant space had been slated to break ground at 248-252 9th Street last year, but an appeal filed by neighborhood activist, Jakkee Bryson, stopped the development in its tracks.

The CEQA-based appeal cites “noise, dust and privacy issues” that would impact area residents (and the environment) during construction.

This afternoon, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors will decide whether or not to uphold the appeal or approve the plans for the Western SoMa development, the building permits for which have already been issued.

    This is not the 1st nor will it be the last time that Dore Alley resident Jakkee Bryson attempts to impose her life style on others.

    The building permits should be allowed , and construction started as soon as possible

    this is what is so wrong with SF- that one crazy person can derail an entire project like this! we have got to reform the appeals process and get more people in favor of projects out there in meetings.

    Yes, we need to completely reform the DR/review process. Make it very expensive for the complainer to file complaints. This woman is wasting our time and money. This project should have been approved long ago, without her insane input.

    Just charge a fee of $2,000 to file an appeal. That’ll eliminate 99% of the passive-aggressive whiners out there.

      That’s a fantastic idea….

    If you read the appeal letter (page 11), the appellant asks for her check of $536 be returned as her only income is social security.
