New renderings have been published for the eight-story residential proposal at 2140 Market Street in the Castro, San Francisco. The project will replace surface parking and a three-unit building with 91 new homes. Kent Mirkhani of 2134 Market Street is responsible for the development.

The new renderings show a slightly modified iteration of the Macy-designed programming and similar to the firm’s work at 1233 Folsom Street. The design has a top-floor setback, further distinguished by the dark grey metal panels.
The 85-foot tall structure will yield around 68,670 square feet, with 56,100 square feet for housing and 2,550 square feet for retail. The development will feature parking for 155 bicycles and no car parking. Two basement floors will be included, with one floor for tenant storage and the other for bicycle parking and maintenance facilities. An electric bicycle garage will be included at ground level.
Unit sizes will vary, with 49 studios, a one-bedroom, and 41 two-bedrooms. There will be nine permanently affordable units designated for households earning 50% of the Area Median Income.
Demolition will be required for an existing small commercial structure, a three-unit apartment building, and a surface parking lot. Three parcels will be merged to create the 11,296-square-foot property. Construction is expected to last around 15 months.
