1055 Market Street Site

Stanton Architecture, the architects behind the renovation of the Hotel Zetta and the fifteen-story Hampton Inn rising at 942 Mission Street, is working on designs for a ten-story hotel to rise at 1055 Market Street, between Sixth and Seventh, the site of the former Kaplan’s army/navy store and Burners’ paradise which closed after a 75-year run.

As proposed, the hotel will include 155 rooms and a ground floor retail space along Market Street.

And while the new retail space won’t be a new surplus store, the new wave of Burners will at least have a place to stay when working with one of their tech companies along the Mid-Market corridor.

    Please continue doing this for the entire mid-market section and the TL

    Needing to see incentives to update large areas of Mid Market and the blocks to the North & South

    Unless there is strict Police enforcement of homeless in the area, I fear how these developments will do.

      Even as a middle-aged in-shape guy, I hesitate to walk this area – and I cringe when I see tourists doing so, fearing the impression they get of our city. This stretch of Market, by our magnificent City Hall, and half-way from Twin Peaks to the Ferry Building, should be a gem, not a wasteland.

      Just wondering what “strict police enforcement of homeless” looks like. I didn’t realize it was a crime to be homeless. Maybe we can criminalize poverty, unemployment, being African American or Latino next, since it seems to make so many entitled, elitist, middle class white people like yourself seem uncomfortable.

        OMG you’re right! that guy is LITERALLY Hitler. Thanks for clarifying that because someone doesn’t like seeing needles, trash, and human excrement in what historically was and what should be a nice part of town is obviously a bigoted evil racist. speaking of bigoted- how do you know jlasf is white or middle class? #doublestandard #troll #SJW while “police enforcement of homeless” is vague at best- i’ve seen crack deals go down on that sidewalk and the police don’t do anything. they even stopped the dealer and customer and then let them just walk away. i think the drugs in that area need policing. that’s a solution that a lot of families in the TL would agree to.

      Not to worry. Those folks are being squeezed out of an increasingly tidy midmarket, like a voluminous poo onto the sidewalk*, further south down into SOMA. We’re seeing a big uptick in street life shenanigans – from your standard outdoor bathrooming & open air drug dealing/use to pantsless prostitutes – as midmarket scrapes itself clean.

      *Or, as spouse & I horrifyingly spotted a couple days ago, poo extruded into a large knitted beanie on the street. On the bright side, easier for some luckless city worker to scoop up…….

    Yeah, that is a problem. There are scads of tax-payer funded homelessness “service” providers in this area – “non-profits” and the like. Part of the SF poverty-industrial complex that makes city officials feel good but accomplishes exactly zero at tremendous cost. But as long as these homeless magnets exist, this area will always be deluged with street people. I’m an ultra-lib and am all in favor of taxpayer dollars helping the downtrodden. But most of these these services do not work and are a shameful waste of taxpayer dollars. I would never buy in this area as long as that situation persists.

      I’m glad you would never buy in this area, since I already live here, I can assure you that you and the likes of your elitist kind that have gentrified our city aren’t welcome in this neighborhood, much less the City. Please leave, and go back to the conservative entitled suburb from which you crawled.

        why is it your city and not mine?

    • Posted by JR "Bob" Dobbs

      Oh, that’s cute! The old “OUR city” line. How non-elitist! It was noted that you didn’t, and couldn’t, refute a single one of the facts I pointed out. Work hard, save some cash, and one day you may be able to move to a better neighborhood too.

        I imagine EMaa as reading the old Mission Residency Application (“score thre epoints if one is a lesbian transvestite illegal immigrant of color”) and agreeing that such an application should be required for appropriate new residents.

    Yet another proof hotels are not suffering from airbnb’s competition. Demand is there.

    • Posted by Sierrajeff

      Or, yet another proof that there’s a paucity of hotel rooms in S.F. (which has one of the lowest hotel vacancy rates in the country), which helps drive AirBNB demand.

    Darn. I always enjoyed Kaplan’s.

    I have never understood why letting people sleep, defecate, fornicate and die on the streets is a progressive value.

    • Posted by Pffttt

      Hear, hear.

    • Posted by Brian M

      Well…this policy is in place because we as a society don’t
      1. believe in “saving people from themselves”

      2. don;t want to spend enough money to save people from themselves.

      It’s both progressive and conservative. Plus, there is an entire industry of service agencies and providers and advocates.

        You can’t help those who don’t want to help themselves.
