Development permits have been filed seeking the approval of a large-scale residential project proposed at 7 South Linden Avenue in South San Francisco. The project proposal includes the construction of two residential buildings offering a total of 700+ homes.
Essex Property Trust and Infill Land Partners LLC are the project developers. The San Mateo-based residential developer (NYSE: ESS) paid $33.5 million for the property, including a 25,000-square-foot warehouse zoned for mixed-industrial use within the city’s downtown area. Sandhill Land Co. was the seller.
The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 4.2 acres. The project proposes to bring more than 700 new homes are as part of two South City projects located within a mile of each other. Essex has pitched a five-story apartment building featuring 445 apartments. Infill has proposed to develop a 262-unit apartment community on two acres at 1477 Huntington Ave., located at the intersection of South Spruce Avenue and Huntington Avenue and adjacent to the Centennial Way Trail. That project site includes an existing 8,350-square-foot building currently leased to AT&T as office space. Infill is proposing a seven-story podium-style apartment building featuring 309 parking spaces. Together, the two projects represent more than 700 new South City homes within a mile of each other.
Thirty-nine units will be reserved at affordable rates to low and very-low-income households. Onsite amenities will include a club room, a fitness studio and Wi-Fi lounge, coworking space, rooftop decks, and a dog park.
The property site is situated roughly a mile from the San Bruno BART Station. The application is currently under review by South San Francisco Planning Department.
