The big plans for either 112 condos or 190,000 square feet of office space to rise up to 11 stories in height upon the auto shop parcels at 565-589 Bryant Street have been scrapped.
Instead, even bigger plans for a 300-room hotel to rise up to 12 stories upon the Central SoMa parcels are in the works, with a 120-car garage, restaurant and 1,600 square feet of retail space fronting Bryant.
Residents, or potential buyers, of north-facing condos at The Palms should take special note of the proposed hotel’s relative mass which is being sculpted by HKS for R.D. Olson Development:
While the site is currently only zoned for development up to 65 feet in height, the pending Central SoMa Plan would raise the height limit for the south side of Bryant Street to allow for development up to 130 feet, but a merger of the parcels for the hotel project as proposed would need special approval.
And yes, the corner parcels on either side of Bryant are slated to be up-zoned for 130 feet in height as well.
