When Pet Food Express lost their battle to occupy the former Blockbuster space on Lombard Street, a non-chain pet store (Wolf & Lion) was granted a lease, but it’s likely not for long. For behind the scenes, plans to level the site and construct a four-story building with 53 condos over 11,000 square feet of retail and an underground garage have been drafted.
As proposed by J.S. Sullivan, the 2444 Lombard Street site would be excavated to a depth of 18 feet to make way for a basement garage with 53 parking spaces for residents, and 20 spaces on the ground floor for the retail, with the driveway located on Divisadero rather than Lombard.
And as designed, the Marina District development would include 18 studios, 18 one-bedrooms, 15 two-bedrooms, and two three-story, three-bedroom townhouses. A mix of balconies, roof decks and rear yards would provide residents with around 12,000 square feet of “open space.”
