The refined plans for razing the shuttered Home restaurant at the Corner of Market and Church, and constructing a four to seven-story building designed by Arquitectonica across the site, could finally be approved by the City next week.
As proposed, the 2100 Market Street project now includes 62 apartments – a mix of 6 studios, 31 one-bedrooms, and 25 two-bedrooms – over 2,600 square feet of restaurant space on the corner, the operator of which has yet to be identified. And while the previously proposed garage for 15 cars has been scrapped, the plans include an interior storage room for 62 bikes.
As such, the existing 19-foot-wide curb cut on Market Street would be eliminated and the curb cut on 14th Street would be reduced from 30 feet to 11 feet and only provide access to service vehicles. The plans also include widening the 14th Street sidewalk from 9 to 12 feet where feasible.
Having sat vacant since 2011, Chipotle had planned to renovate and occupy the existing 2100 Market Street building, but those plans were rejected by San Francisco’s Planning Commission in 2013. Brian Spiers Development, the developer behind Linea down the street at 1998 Market is leading the charge this time around, with the Planning Department’s support.
The development’s seven (7) required below-market-rate units will be provided on-site if the project, which will take 20 months to construct, is approved.
