Ambitious plans to redevelop the nearly 6-acre Recology site at 900 7th Street – which is bounded by 7th, Berry, De Haro, Carolina and Channel – are in the works. And as envisioned by SOM, the $850 million development could yield over 1,000 units of housing; nearly 400,000 square feet of new office, lab and/or PDR space; 11,000 square feet of retail; and off-street parking for over 1,000 cars.
While the site at the intersection of Lower Potrero Hill, Mission Bay and Showplace Square, which has housed Recology’s administrative offices and served as a parking and maintenance facility for its fleet of garbage trucks over the past several decades, isn’t currently zoned for residential or general office uses and is currently limited to 58 feet in height, Recology is planning to seek a major rezoning of the site and build two 240-foot-tall residential towers and two 85-foot-tall commercial and/or residential buildings, with new mid-block passages and an extension of Alameda Street from De Haro to 7th.
And no, the potential development hasn’t been added to our latest pipeline report for the city, at least not yet. But as always, we’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
