Responding to comments from both the public and Planning, the design for the seven-story development with 72 condos to rise on the northwest corner of 16th Street and South Van Ness Avenue has been revised, as newly rendered above, and is slated to be approved next week.
As the proposed development looked prior to the redesign:
The changes to the project to rise at 490 South Van Ness Avenue include a refinement of the exterior massing and palette (“as evidenced by the projecting bay windows and selection of a colored cement plaster and composite panels”), a cornice element along the exterior facades, and a setback of the top story along Adair Street.
Designed by Forum Design for JCN Development, the Mission District development includes a 1,100 square foot retail space on the corner of 16th and parking for 48 cars and 83 bikes below. The former “Quality Tune-Up” site was purchased for $2,650,000 in 2009 having been listed for $4.5 million at the time.
