The Impact Report for the proposed 395-unit Lower Potrero Hill development to rise up to six-stories in height at 16th and Mississippi, and up to four stories along 17th Street, has just been published and the public hearing for the project has been scheduled for September 17.
As designed by BAR Architects, the development’s 901 16th Street building would rise to a height of 68 feet (not including screening for roof-top equipment or elevator shafts which would reach a height of 82 feet) on the northern half of the Corovan Storage Facility site and includes 260 residential units over 20,000 square feet of retail and an underground garage for 263 cars and 264 bikes.
A private landscaped mews would run between the northern and southern halves of the site.
And on the southern half, the proposed 1200 17th Street building by Christiani Johnson Architects would rise up to 48-feet in height, with 135 units over 4,700 square feet of retail and an underground garage for 125 cars and 191 bikes.
A public promenade and plaza would run mid-block between 16th and 17th Streets, aligned with the future Daggett Park to the north.
According to the project’s official Impact Report, the most significant impact would be with respect to traffic at the intersections of 17th and Mississippi, Mariposa and Pennsylvania, and Mariposa and Mississippi Streets, but those impacts could be mitigated with new signals or other such measures.
The neighborhood group known as Save the Hill, which was successful in driving Kaiser from the site, remains opposed to the development as proposed and has drafted an unofficial set of alternative plans for the site.
