A 232-unit residential project planned for San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood is continuing to move ahead in the permitting process. Most recently, the project was given the greenlight to move forward to CEQA for a streamlined environmental review process. 

Located at 1458 San Bruno Avenue on a 0.8-acre lot, the project is being developed by 1499 Potrero Associates, an entity linked to developer Christopher Goode. The project would feature a residential building with up to seven stories over one basement level. 

In total, the project would include approximately 154,000 square feet of residential space which would include a mix of 137 studio units, two one-bedroom units, 91 two-bedroom units and two three-bedroom units. Additionally, 28 of the total units would be designated as affordable housing. 

As well as the residential space, the project features 10,000 square feet of private open space, which includes 38 square feet of private balconies and green roofs. The project would also offer 146 bicycle parking spaces.

Designs for the project come from architecture firm Multistudio – previously known as Gould Evans – and show a white facade with wood and concrete elements throughout. The building also features metal balconies jutting out from the building and a landscaped rooftop. 

Currently, the project site is developed with three industrial buildings totaling approximately 24,313 square feet. All existing structures would be demolished for the project to be developed. 

The development would take shape across from Potrero del Sol Park. The site is also within close proximity to the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center and just off of Interstate 101, which provides immediate access to the rest of the Bay Area. 

Overall, San Francisco has seen a significant amount of residential projects come down the pipeline in recent months. One project that will soon be developed in San Francisco’s Civic Center is a 40-story residential tower at 1500-1540 Market Street. The project by Build Inc. received approval in July and will include the construction of 466 residential units. 

In the city’s Mission Rock neighborhood, a partnership between the San Francisco Giants and Tishman Speyer also recently broke ground on a 23-story multifamily tower. The 254-unit project, which broke ground in June, is part of a larger 28-acre project that will include approximately 1,200 residential units at full build out.
