As we outlined back in May:

Having just cleared a key environmental hurdle which obviates the need for a detailed Environmental Impact Report to be prepared for the project, the further refined plans for a bold 13-story building designed by Woods Bagot to rise on the northeast corner of Van Ness and Post are now even closer to reality.

The development as proposed would now yield 107 condos, a mix of 59 one-bedrooms and 48 twos, over a new 107,000-square-foot medical office building, with a 4,400-square-foot restaurant space and adjacent terrace atop the buildings podium, on the 6th floor, a 275-car garage with 53 spaces for the dwelling units, and 24,500-square-feet of retail space (which isn’t likely to be leased to a full-service grocery store as originally teased but could still support a smaller market as the space has been divided in two).

As we noted at the time, an updated application for the project had already been submitted to Planning as well. And in fact, the refined plans are slated to be approved by San Francisco’s Planning Commission next week. We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.

    Great design and with the repaving of Van Ness sidewalks might help make the area more walkable. If the BRT ever gets completed – the area might start looking pretty nice!

    But wait! Doesn’t this building have any kind of vague and questionable historical value? Have we checked to make sure that nobody famous has ever had a membership at this 24 Hour Fitness, maybe one of the members of Metallica?

      Your trenchant sarcasm aside, there’s probably no historic value here, so the real estate industrial complex is free to wage the class war that lines its pockets, and erect more putrid, block-killing, luxury condoloft fishtanks that will only be affordable only to and desired by foreign money launderers, private equity speculation pirates, and AirBnB scofflaws.

    Why the “modern” descriptive? Is it more “modern” than other projects in the city?
