Following Starbucks’ failed bid to renovate and occupy the existing retail space on the southwest corner of Market and Sanchez back in 2013, plans for a six-story building with nine condos over a ground floor commercial space to rise on the irregularly shaped 2201 Market Street parcel emerged.
And while their concept designs for the parcel’s development have been kicked to the curb, Edmonds + Lee Architects have drafted a new set of plans for the site and the development team is actively seeking the necessary variances to proceed.
The revised plans for the parcel include 14 condos over 3,200 sq. ft. of ground floor retail space and a basement garage for four cars. The six-story, 65-foot-tall building would cover the entire lot and is designed with bays that extend beyond the property line, necessitating a rear yard modification and variance from the requirements for obstructions over streets and alleys.
San Francisco’s Zoning Administrator is slated to issue a ruling on the requested variances next week.
