As we first reported back in 2017, plans to raze the two-story Fast Signs Building on the northwest corner of Harrison and Hawthorne Streets and develop a 130-foot-tall residential building on the site, with 118 residential units over a garage for 26 cars, were in the works.
While the site was only zoned for development up to 85 feet in height, the project team was banking on the adoption of San Francisco’s contentious Central SoMa plan which has since added the extra 45 feet as envisioned and rendered last year.

In fact, density bonus plans for the up-zoned site have since been drawn by Ankrom Moisan Architects. And if approved as newly proposed, a 294-foot-tall, 29-story building could rise on the corner site, with 245 residential units over a 928-square-foot retail space and an underground garage for 42 cars, as newly rendered below:
