Plans to demolish the two-story building and garage on the northeast corner of Larkin and Bush are in the works. And as envisioned, a 16-story building would rise up to 161 feet in height upon the site, which is twice as high as the limit for the site as currently zoned and for which a State Density Bonus is planned to be invoked.
The development as proposed would yield 198 units of senior housing, including both assisted and independent living units, with no off-street parking nor ground floor retail space at its base.
And yes, the existing building on the site, which was designed by Sylvain Schnaittacher and built in 1914 for the Taxicab Company of California, was identified as a historic resource, based on a number of different criteria, when surveyed for San Francisco’s Historic Auto Row.
We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
