The San Francisco Planning Department has published a certificate of determination, confirming that a seven-story apartment proposal at 1458 San Bruno Avenue is eligible for the streamlined environmental review process. The plans utilize the State Density Bonus program to create 232 apartments, with 28 affordable, directly across from the Potrero del Sol park in Potrero Hill. The first-time housing developer Christopher Goode, whose family has owned the property for decades, is responsible for the project.
Multistudio, formerly known as Gould Evans, is the architect. The structure will have a pale white facade clad with composite board panels. Accent vertical wood panels and board-formed concrete along the base will add texture, while the metal balcony ledges rise out of the building giving most residents access to immediate fresh air. The metal surfaces will also incorporate living green walls, with a large section of green wall facing the adjacent Highway 101 and gardens.
The 78-foot tall structure will yield 156,000 square feet with 129,830 square feet for housing, 1,290 square feet for parking 134 bicycles, and 1,640 square feet for amenities. Unit sizes will vary with 137 studios, two one-bedrooms, 91 two-bedrooms, and two three-bedrooms. Around 28 units will be designated as affordable.
The structure will rise at the southern end of San Bruno Avenue, past 25th Street and two blocks away from the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital campus. Demolition will be required for three existing industrial structures.
With the Planning Department’s approval for a streamlined environmental review process, plans Construction is expected to take around 24 months, from groundbreaking to completion.
