2600 Harrison Street Site

The waylaid plans to raze the shuttered Western Plywood warehouse at Harrison and 22nd Streets and construct a wedge-shaped, four-story building on the Mission District site are slated to be approved by San Francisco’s Planning Commission on July 14.

As proposed and in the works since 2014, the 2600 Harrison Street project now includes the development of 19 residential units; one small Production, Distribution & Repair (PDR) space; basement parking for 15 cars; and a roof deck for residents overlooking the old Southern Pacific Railroad Right of Way.

    bright and cheery concept… lots of concrete to graffiti… and a great feel for street-side retail…

      I had the same thought. Maybe we can rephrase it to “A canvass for our underprivileged youth to brighten with their witty scatological and violent gang wisdom”.

      the new buildings around this part of Harrison are ugly so this will blend well

        You make that joke, but it ACTUALLY EXISTS.

    I can live with most of it, except the concrete slab wall at the ground floor. gah! what a terrible street presence! It will be a taggers paradise! Something, anything, with some design and aesthetics for those walking by should be considered. how about some plantings and a hanging green wall?

    I agree with most of these comments – what’s with the dark motif and the graffiti wall in waiting?

    New money loves dark and stark, more game of thrones and nods to power …

    Yet another eyesore gentrifying the Mission. Low income units nonexistent as greed rules SF…

    I live within a block of this site.

    What the article doesn’t point out is that the new building’s garage is on ground level (article incorrectly states a basement garage.) So the concrete walls hide (probably nice) cars. This block is not a retail corridor and having the lights and eyes of three floors of living space above will do a lot for this stretch of abandoned street.

    To all the comments about tagging, I don’t see that as a huge problem as the existing abandoned warehouse doesn’t attract graffiti. But, the existing abandoned warehouse does attract a shit-ton of trash a la “no one is here, I can put my old mattresses, TVs, clothes here and it isn’t my problemo no more”. Also homeless camps develop here from time to time; we all know that loveliness too well.

    IMO, it’s about time this parcel is built out. And a modern design – albeit dark to some eyes – will add to the aesthetics of the block.

    Build baby build.

      Unless the plans have recently changed, the floor of the proposed garage, which is at the rear of the site, is actually a few feet below grade with pits for stacking cars.

      And right behind those concrete walls fronting Harrison is residential and PDR space, not the aforementioned garage.

    Formidably UGLY unfriendly design indeed. Great idea about a green wall, if there is someone to take care of it, other than turn into another garbage catcher! And what about affordable units…are any designated for this project at all?

    For those of you lamenting the ‘ugly’ proposed design and how it will attract taggers: how about you guys open your eyes and take a look at the existing building that is there right now, notice how ‘pretty’ it is, and notice how it does not have _any_ windows at street level… and is devoid of any tags. (because if you have tags on your property the city is very quick to ask you (the building’s owner) to clean them up).
