The plans to raze the existing one-story warehouse on the northwest corner of 15th and Shotwell and build a five-story building with 23 condos on the Mission District lot are slated to be approved this week, a plan which was disapproved in 2010 when a four-story building with ten apartments was proposed to rise on the site but the warehouse was identified as a “potential historic resource” for the neighborhood.
Following the disapproval in 2010, the 1450 15th Street warehouse and lot was sold for $1,450,000 in October of 2012 and the new plans were drawn:
As designed by Kotas/Pantaleoni Architects, the development will rise to a height of 50 feet, with 13 one-bedrooms (ranging in size from 750 to 1,000 square feet) and 10 two-bedrooms (ranging from 775 to 1,450 square feet) over parking for 16 autos and 23 bikes. The entrance to the garage would be by way of Shotwell.
San Francisco’s Planning Department is recommending the new project be approved as proposed.
