Pacific Coast Homes, a subsidiary of Chevron Land & Development, has secured an option to purchase the long-shuttered Chevron station at the corner of Bay and Buchanan from Chevron U.S.A. and has drafted plans for a four-story building to rise on the 1598 Bay Street site.
As proposed, the development would include 28 condos. And “given the neighborhood sensitivity to overflow parking,” the development team is proposing to include an underground garage for 42 cars, a parking ratio of 1.5 spaces per unit, which San Francisco’s Planning Commission would need to conditionally approve.
In the words of the development team with respect to the proposed architecture:
“The design will be a contemporary expression of the local character of San Francisco’s Marina district that delivers a cutting edge residential community with nuanced and subtle references to the area’s historic architectural details. Substantial and enduring building materials will be balanced with generous windows.”
Or in the words of the Planning Department: “brick clad.”
The former Currie’s Chevron Station site has already been cleared of its underground storage tanks.
