Renderings are out for a new single-family house with an additional dwelling unit at 249 Texas Street, on Potrero Hill, San Francisco. John Maniscalco Architecture is responsible for the design, a contemporary project with vertical and horizontal wood siding, oversized windows, and a rooftop balcony. Its two units introduce another 4,850 square feet into the affluent neighborhood. Property owners Joanne Siu and Kerry Shapiro are responsible for the development.
The 30-foot proposal yields 4,360 square feet of residential use, with 3,600 square feet in the primary residence and 770 square feet from the basement for the additional dwelling unit (ADU). The remaining 490 square feet will produce on-site parking for the primary residents.
The architect has been covered before with similarly-posh single-family homes across the city. For 249 Texas Street, the building has a low profile along the street, with three floors facing the street and the fourth floor obscured below ground. The firm is best known for its work on 89 Belgrave Avenue, which was the third-highest valued sale in San Francisco in 2019 at the cost of $24 million.
249 Texas Street sold to the current property own in 2019 for $1.6 million. The project is heading to the City’s Planning Commission on February 4th, with a request for Conditional Use Authorization to demolition the existing structure and construction.
