Permits have been filed by the Episcopal Community Services in partnership with the City to convert a seven-story hotel at 440 Geary Street into a permanent housing shelter. This follows permits in September to transform the hotel at 1000 Sutter Street, both of which are funded by the same SF Homekey program. This purchase cost $29.1 million following a recent declaration for more funding by Governor Gavin Newsom.
Demolition permits have been filed for a single-story McDonalds at 820 Bryant Street, adjacent to the city’s Hall of Justice in SoMa, San Francisco. The permits were filed by the city’s own Public Works department. This news comes over a year after media outlets like the SF Examiner reported on the city’s purchase of the vacant retro single-story commercial building for $16 million.
