New plans will be presented in a public meeting for a five-story residential infill at 5280 3rd Street in Bayview, San Francisco. The project applicant is scheduled to present the plans to the city Planning Department this Thursday. MWA Architects is responsible for the applicant.
The 52-foot tall structure will yield around 17,850 square feet, with 17,100 square feet for residential use and 750 square feet for commercial retail. Parking will be included for 13 bicycles.
Once complete, the building will offer 12 new apartments, of which one will be affordable. Unit sizes will vary with eight two-bedrooms and four three-bedrooms. The back of the lot will include a landscaped courtyard for all residents, including a community table, cafe-style seating, planters, and a raised turf bed. The ground floor will include a community room, laundry, lobby, and bicycle locker. On the second floor, residents will also find access to two sheltered courtyards.
MWA Architects is responsible for the design. The exterior will be punctured with an irregular pattern of windows. Facade materials will include stucco and ceramic tiles.
Future residents will be across from a Third Street light rail station, connecting residents to Market Street in less than 45 minutes. The property is bound between Williams Avenue and Thornton Avenue, on the same block as 5250 3rd Street, a proposed seven-story residential development by the Toboni Group.
A Bayview-based individual is listed as the property owner. The project is scheduled to be reviewed by the San Francisco Planning Department this Thursday, November 17th, starting at 1 PM. For more information, see the meeting agenda here.
