Shuttered by a rent increase last year, plans to level the former Amsterdam Café at 937 Geary Street, along with the two adjacent storefronts at 939 Geary (Hanaro Cocktails) and 941 Geary, are in the works.
And as proposed, a five-story hotel will rise up to 58 feet in height across the ‘Oasis of the ‘Loin’ site which stretches from Geary to Myrtle.
As designed by Stanton Architecture, the proposed hotel would have 55 rooms, with a lobby lounge, limited-service breakfast room and deck on its roof.
But we’ll note that the existing brick building on the site has been identified by the Keeper of the National Register as a contributing resource to San Francisco’s Uptown Tenderloin Historic District, a notation which could complicate matters a bit and/or result in a redesign and required facadism.
And the site is zoned for development up to 80 feet in height.
