Plans to level the low slung commercial complex at 300 De Haro and develop a 13-story building at the corner of 16th Street appear to have been abandoned. But a squatter set of plans for the odd shaped Lower Potrero Hill site have been drawn.
While the 13-story structure was envisioned to yield 204 apartments, with 6,200 square feet of new ground floor retail space and stacked parking for 49 cars, the new set of plans call for a denser 7-story building to rise across the site, with 290 units of “group housing,” 3,400 square feet of ground floor commercial space and stacked parking for up to 55 cars.
And while the 13-story development would have yielded roughly the same number of bed(room)s as the group housing structure, at least when counting studios as having one (1), the squatter 7-story building would be roughly 30 percent smaller, in terms of its residential and structural square footage, as designed.
We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
