Renderings have been revealed alongside new permits filed for 11-17 Cypress Street in San Francisco’s Mission District. The plan will create three new homes in the backyard of an existing apartment building close to the 24th Street BART Station. Sausalito-based Cofi Hand Trust is listed as the property owner.
The roughly 50-foot tall structure will yield around 6,860 square feet, with 5,420 square feet for housing and 1,440 square feet for the ground-level garage. The three units will all have identical triplex floor plans, accessible from private stairways leading toward Cypress Street. Each unit will have a dining and living room on the second floor and three bedrooms on the floors above. Each unit will have access to two rooftop decks facing Cypress Street and South Van Ness.
EAG Studio is the project architect. The studio has proposed a familiar apartment-style vernacular for San Francisco, including three three-level bay windows, Spanish-tile roofing over the ground level, and four large oval portals along the cornice. Illustrations show the structure decorated with murals at street level and the south-facing facade.
The project application has received support from Erick Arguello, founder of the neighborhood non-profit Calle 24 Latino Cultural District. The 0.12-acre parcel is located between South Van Ness Avenue and Cypress Street, on a property bound by 24th and 25th Street. The three-unit building along South Van Ness will remain undisturbed through construction. Residents will be a block away from the 24th Street BART Station.
