The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has approved five-story plans for 3832 18th Street in the Mission District. The project has been shortened from a previous application with six floors but still has 19 group housing units. Vanguard Properties is responsible for the applicant, operating through M-J SF Investments LLC.
The 50-foot tall structure will yield 10,020 square feet, with an open rear yard and common amenities inside. There will be an 860 square foot rear courtyard for all residents, private decks for two units, and a 165 square foot rear deck. Demolition will be required for the existing single-family house on-site.
Parking will be included for five bicycles. Three units will be affordable housing, marketed for households earning around 80% of the Area Median Income.
SIA Consulting is managing the design. The exterior will be clad with stucco and horizontal siding on the two protruding bay windows.
The property is located between Church and Sanchez Street, a block from the northwest corner of Mission Dolores Park. The neighborhood is serviced by light rail, buses, and the 16th Street BART station is just fifteen minutes away on foot.
A timeline for construction has not been established.
