A new set of permits have been submitted seeking the approval of a housing project proposed at 1196 Columbus Avenue in North Beach, San Francisco. The project proposal includes the demolition of an existing commercial building on the site in order to construct a six-story residential building.

Linden Station Columbus, LLC is the building owner. Elevation Architects is responsible for the design concepts.

The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 6,420 square feet. The project will bring residential units into a six-story building. The project will include 56 group housing rooms. The building will yield a residential built-up area totaling 28,865 square feet. The building facade will rise a height of 55 feet. The residential complex will include 56 Class I and 4 Class 2 bicycle spaces and approximately 1,413 square feet of usable open space.

The developing team published a different set of renderings last year. The project plans have now been updated.  The project is seeking waivers from rear yard and building height pursuant to the State Density Bonus Law and those findings will be made at a Planning Commission hearing on July 28, 2022.

    Another souless concrete box, right out of the Urban Renewal playlist.

  3. @Irish — this isn’t the prettiest building, but what it replaces is LITERALLY a concrete box. Architecturally, this is leaps better. To compare it to Urban Renewal is a disservice to all involved with equitable growth and corrections of historical wrongs.
