San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors has unanimously rejected two appeals which had aimed to overturn Planning’s approvals for a 199-unit building at 2000 Bryant Street, the so-called “Beast on Bryant” to rise up to six stories in height across the northern half of the Mission District block bounded by Bryant, 18th, Florida and 19th Streets.
In addition to the nearly 200 market-rate units to rise on the northern two-thirds of the 2000-2070 Bryant Street site, the mid-block 2070 Bryant Street parcel will be dedicated to the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development for the construction of over 100 Below Market Rate (BMR) units.
And as envisioned, the 2070 Bryant Street building will include 7,000 square feet of art space, but the former CellSpace turned InnerMission building at 2050 Bryant Street will be razed.
The approved market-rate building includes a ground-floor garage for 84 cars and 7,000 square feet of retail space at the corner of 18th and Florida.
A mid-block passage between the market-rate and below-market-rate buildings will be lined with 4,000 square feet of new Production, Distribution and Repair (PDR) space across the ground floor.
And the demolition and building permits for the 2000 Bryant Street project are in the works.
