The designs for an eight-story building with 95 condos over a 10,000-square-foot church to rise on the southeast corner of Gough and Eddy are one step closer to being blessed by Planning as the environmental review for the project has been completed and no red flags have been raised.
A fire destroyed the ornate St. Paulus Evangelical Lutheran Church which had stood upon the 950 Gough Street site until 1995, and Maracor Development has been shepherding the development plans for the parcel, which the Church quietly placed on the market last year, through Planning over the past few years.
The parcel most recently served as home to the Hayes Valley Free Farm which has since closed.
In addition to the replacement church and condos, the proposed development include a two-level parking garage for 61 cars, which is 34 fewer than the minimum of one space per dwelling unit as is required for the site by San Francisco’s Planning Code. The application for a variance to allow the project to move forward as proposed is now in the hands of Planning.
If the estimated $30 million project is approved and construction commences this winter, 950 Gough would be ready for occupancy by the summer of 2017.
