The Planning Commission will review plans for the construction of a six-story mixed-use building at 1324-1326 Powell Street in Chinatown, San Francisco. The development will bring 17 units to a parcel containing a vacant structure. The city staff recommendation is for the planning commission to approve the project. Mahmoud Larizadeh is responsible for the development as the property owner.
The 75-foot structure will yield 18,390 square feet, of which 3,400 square feet will be for ground-level community facilities. 11,590 square feet will be dedicated to residential use, averaging 680 square feet. Residents will have access to a shared rooftop deck, while two apartments on the second level will have private balconies to use in the building’s rear.
AXIS GFA Architecture is responsible for the proposal’s design. The facade design features a bay-window front and the second and third floors, with a set-back pushing the rest of the building out of view for the pedestrian. The building is clad with grey wood siding, grey plaster, and vertical natural wood panels.
The property last sold in 2015 for $1.6 million. City assessors now value it for $1.75 million. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
The city meaning takes place today at 1 PM. You can find information on how to join the meeting on the San Francisco Planning website.
