Plans to raze Pete’s Union 76 Service station on the southwest corner of Noriega and 44th Avenue have been drawn. And as proposed, a four-story building with 14 condos over 14 residential parking spaces and a 9,600-square-foot grocery store will rise on the Outer Sunset site.
If approved, then grocery store space is proposed to become an all-new home for Noriega Produce which currently operates at 3821 Noriega Street, less than two blocks away. The family behind Noriega Produce also run Haight Street Market and is behind Gus’s Community Market in the Mission as well.
As currently zoned, the 3701 Noriega Street parcel can only accommodate 12 units, but the project sponsors are seeking a “density bonus” in exchange for including two on-site below market rate (BMR) units as part of the development. A variance to allow the project to be built without any parking spaces for the grocery will have to be approved as well.
