Plans to level the Mission District garage at 1721 15th Street, between Little Star Pizza and The Monastery, are in the works.
And as proposed, a five-story building, with twenty-four (24) residential units over 2,700 square feet of retail space, will rise up to 55 feet in height upon the site which was formerly home to Jay’s Auto Body Center.
As designed by Workshop1 for Dragonfly Investments Group, the proposed development’s eight (8) one-bedrooms would average around 780 square feet apiece while its sixteen (16) two-bedrooms would average closer to 1,100 and the building, which now includes off-street parking for twenty-four (24) bikes and zero (0) cars, and the building’s facade would be finished with a perforated Corian panels.
And while the existing 102-year-old garage had been tagged as a potential Historic Resource for the ‘Inner Mission Reconstruction Historic District’ when purchased by Dragonfly in 2016, the group has just secured a determination from Planning that there are “no historical resource(s) present” to impede the building’s demolition.
We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
