The creative plans for two equal-sized, but slightly offset, buildings to rise up to 85 feet in height upon the through-block Central SoMa parcel at 470-474 Bryant Street have just qualified for a streamlined review.
As we outlined last year, the proposed development includes a demolition of the adjacent, modern looking building at 482 Bryant, around which the 470-474 Bryant Street lot currently wraps, as well. And as envisioned, the property lines for the two parcels would then be redrawn to allow for one 7-story building fronting Bryant Street and another fronting Stillman, each with six stories of new office space over a floor of “PDR” space and basement garages for a total of 26 cars.
And as the office component of one building was designed to precisely measure 49,999 square feet, and the other 49,830 square feet, the project team would not need to secure an allocation from the City’s effectively depleted pool of allowable office developments that measure 50,000 square feet or more in order to proceed, assuming the proposed approach, lot line adjustment and subsequent subdivision are approved.
All that being said, building permits for the project, which would take an estimated 18 months to complete, have yet to be proactively requested.
We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
