Plans for a nine-story building to rise at 475 Minna Street, covering roughly a third of the existing mid-block parking lot on the south side of Minna between 5th and 6th Streets, are poised to be approved by San Francisco’s Planning Commission tomorrow.
As proposed and designed by Stanton Architecture, the building will contain 15 units, three of which will be below market rate (BMR). And what may appear to be a skinny garage door in the rendering, is actually, and rather inexplicably, a window into the building’s storage room for 15 bikes.
The proposal includes the planting of two new street trees as well. And the Western SoMa site upon which the 88-foot building would rise is zoned for development up to 120-feet.
