Having hit the market listed as an “impeccable & elegant home” with “partial views and surrounding gardens” for $11.5 million in April of 2015, the remodeled 6,100-square-foot home at 2939 Vallejo Street, which is the four-story Pacific Heights home to the right of the outlined parcel above, sold for $12 million in two weeks time.
According to a lawsuit filed by the buyers of the home that August, the seller’s agent had represented that the adjacent undeveloped parcel, which was owned by the home’s seller as well, would not be sold or developed “for the foreseeable future.”
A month later, the undeveloped parcel known as 2921 Vallejo Street was sold to another couple for $5 million. And plans for a modern 8,000-square-foot home to rise on the up-sloping lot were subsequently revealed.
While the aforementioned lawsuit appears to have been confidentially settled late last year, and the proposed John Maniscalco home to rise on the 2921 Vallejo Street site has now been scaled back to 7,000 square feet, as newly rendered above, the owners of 2939 Vallejo are one of four neighbors who have filed Discretionary Review (DR) requests opposing the development as proposed, with objections ranging from the overall mass and scale of the home relative to the size of its 4,000-square-foot lot, to the extent of required excavation and removal of all the trees on the wooded site, along with the requisite “loss of light, air and privacy.”
Next week, San Francisco’s Planning Commission is slated to rule on the proposed development of 2921 Vallejo Street. San Francisco’s Planning Department is recommending the project be approved as proposed.
