As we first outlined early last year:
Plans for 20 new residential buildings to rise on a vacant 7-acre slice of land fronting Jamestown Avenue, a former Candlestick Park parking lot which overlooks the massive Candlestick Point redevelopment which is now underway below, have been drafted by Hunt Hale Jones Architects for Strada Investment Group.
As envisioned, the 20 buildings would rise up to 40 feet in height, the maximum for which the site is zoned, and yield a total of 122 condominiums, ranging in size from 1,200 to 1,600 square feet, with 81 two bedrooms and 41 threes, a network of shared open spaces, and parking for a total of 180 cars (including 17 spaces for guests).
And while the proposed Jamestown development sits outside the official boundaries Lennar’s Candlestick Point project, it’s positioned to leverage the Point’s future outdoor spaces, infrastructure and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line.
Since refined by Hunt Hale Jones and newly rendered below, the 122 proposed units now range in size from 1,100 to 1,550 square feet, with 153 off-street parking spaces for residents and 17 spaces for guests.
And while a number of neighbors have raised their concerns with the parking ratio for the 285-bedroom project, San Francisco’s Planning Department is recommending the 853 Jamestown Avenue project, the RH-2 site for which is zoned for a maximum of 100 code-compliant units, if theoretically subdivided into a potential 50 lots, and a required Density Bonus for the development as proposed be approved San Francisco’s Planning Commission tomorrow afternoon.
