Permits have been filed to expand a residential building at 194 Thrift Street in the neighborhood of Ingleside, San Francisco. The property sits between Plymouth Avenue and Capitol Avenue. Nearby transit access is offered to BART via Balboa Park Station, as well as MUNI light rail at a station located adjacent to the BART hub.
The permit calls for a large addition to the structure. The expansion will include three stories beside the existing structure, rather than on top. From this expansion, an additional dwelling unit will be created. This will bring the structure’s unit count from a single-family dwelling up to a two-unit duplex structure. Not all of the additional space will be created for the new residential unit, as some will be built for additional floor space for the current home.
The address’s existing structure is a three-story, cube-shaped home that is a common design for the neighborhood. The coming addition will replace a small side yard sitting next to the current home.
