Construction permits have been submitted for new construction at 842 California Street in Chinatown, San Francisco. The project proposal includes the demolition and removal of four existing structures on the site. The four structures include two single-family homes, one three-unit residential apartment building, and one commercial building. Cass Calder Smith Architecture + Interiors is the architect managing the design and construction of the project.
The development proposal includes the construction of a single seven-story building and a basement. The new building features twenty-one market-rate condominiums, three market-rate replacement rental units, and on-site parking in the basement. Outdoor space is also proposed, including private decks for five units on floors one, two, and seven. A common-use terrace with a garden and fire pit at the roof is also proposed.
The new construction features a total of twenty-four residential units. The total area of the lot is 6090 square feet. Twenty-four class one and one class 2 bike parking spaces are also planned, along with nine on-site vehicle parking spaces in the basement.
The neighborhood is a walker’s paradise. Most of the daily errands can be completed by foot. The area is well-serviced by MUNI bus lines like 1, 2, 3, 8, 30, 31, 38, 45, and 76.
