Construction activity has started for the eight-story infill at 988 Harrison Street in SoMa, San Francisco. The activity was spotted just over two weeks after excavation permits were issued by the San Francisco Planning Department. J.S. Sullivan is the project developer.
The proposal will create 90 units of housing, of which 12 will be designated as affordable. Unit sizes will vary with five studios, 49 one-bedrooms, 34 two-bedrooms, and two two-bedrooms. Parking will be included for 24 cars. Residents will benefit from various open space amenities, include a podium-topping courtyard and the rooftop deck.
According to planning documents drafted by RG Architecture, the 85-foot tall structure will yield 91,500 square feet, with 82,700 square feet for housing, around 5,000 square feet for the 24-car garage, and 6,850 square feet for retail. A 690 square-foot basement room will offer resident’s storage for 90 bicycles.
Demolition has already occurred for the former gas station on the site. Construction permits estimate the cost at around $30 million, an approximate figure not inclusive of all development costs.
