Recent activity shows that development persists for an eight-story mixed-use infill at 744 Harrison Street in SoMa, San Francisco. The project will bring a mix of hotel and residential use on top of a ground-level restaurant. However, this persistence comes in the form of a permit approval extension. The development was originally approved in 2018. An application to extend construction entitlements for an additional three years was approved Wednesday. Leon Lee & Associates are responsible for the development as the property owner.

Tishman Speyer was the developer for the construction and remained as the property owner.
