Two years ago, a fire damaged the home which shares the lot with the former Iglesia del Pacto Evangelico church at 856 Capp Street, between 23rd and 24th in the Mission. And in a move which could spark a few new flames, a proposal to convert the church into a nine-unit, market-rate building has been submitted to San Francisco’s Planning Department for review.
As proposed, the fire-damaged home on the parcel would be razed while the church building would be expanded up to 40-feet in height and out to roughly 12,000-square-feet in size. The earthquake shack which also sits on the site would remain in place.
And as the proposal is for fewer than ten units, the development would not be required to include, nor fund, the development of any below market rate (BMR) units.
