Public notice has been published ahead of the public review of 3832 18th Street by the San Francisco planning commission on July 15th. The development seeks to add 19 group-housing apartments to the city’s housing market in the Mission District. SIA Consulting is managing the project and design.
Located between Church and Sanchez Street, the new low-to-mid-density housing would rise half a block from the iconic Mission Dolores Park. Rich with retail and apartment buildings, the area is serviced by the Light Rail J line, and the 16th Street Mission BART stop is 16 minutes away on foot.
The 60-foot tall project will yield 11,150 square feet, including 7,600 sq ft for residential use, 1,200 sq ft for open space, and 370 sq ft for common area. Parking will be included for 19 bicycles. The project makes use of the California State Density bonus by having three affordable units. The inclusion invokes a 35% increase since the development was filed before density bonuses were increased in 2021. The base project would create 14 units. After the state bonus is invoked, the project can include 19 units.
The design by SIA Consulting features bay windows rising to two fifth-floor private terraces. Wood trim and smooth stucco will cover the facade. Residential amenities include a first-floor community room. Units include private restrooms and a kitchenette.
The development will be reviewed by the San Francisco Planning Commission during a meeting Thursday, July 15th at 1 PM. Visit here for more information.
Vanguard Properties is listed as the project developer after the property was sold in 2019 for $1.9 million. The construction job is expected to cost $4 million.
