New planning documents have been published for the mixed-use development of 2455 Harrison Street in the Mission District of San Francisco. The proposal calls for the demolition of a small commercial structure to make way for a new building with five apartments and non-life science laboratory space. Wickman Development & Construction is managing the project through Fahman Properties LLC.
The structure will rise 48 feet to the rooftop and 64 feet to the elevator penthouse’s top. The four-story building will yield 12,090 square feet, of which 4,290 square feet will be for non-life science laboratory space between the basement, first, and second floors. 3,270 square feet will be for residential use, split between two studios, a one-bedroom, and two two-bedroom units. Parking will be included on-site for eight bicycles. Residents of unit A will have a private deck overlooking the building rear, while the rest of the residents can access a 530 square-foot shared roof deck.
Kerman Morris Architects is responsible for the design. The facade consists of vertical corrugated metal siding with aluminum sunshade fins framing the residential floor-to-ceiling windows. The sides perpendicular to the street are covered with cement plaster. A striking orange accent will be produced at ground level, with a steel canopy covering the residential lobby entrance.
The address is located between 20th and 21st Street, a walkable retail-rich neighborhood. The 24th Street Mission BART Station is twelve minutes away on foot.
The property last sold in 2018 for $1.8 million. Construction permits subsequently filed in 2019 estimate construction costs for the in-fill proposal to be $1.5 million. With the proposal still under review, the recently submitted plans show that it is still quite active.
