Bonus Plans for Building up in Hayes Valley

by SocketSite

Plans for a nearly 200-unit building to rise up to 130 feet in height on the Hayes Valley site known as 600 McAllister Street, which consists of two adjacent parking lot parcels on the northwest corner of McAllister and Franklin, including the former Central Freeway Parcel D, have been drafted.

While the corner site is principally zoned for development up to 85 feet in height and a density of around 150 units, the approval of a state Density Bonus could yield up to 197 units, 20 percent of which would be offered at below market rates, rising up to 130 feet in height as roughly massed by David Baker Architects:

And as envisioned, the 197 units – a mix of 80 studios averaging 370 square feet apiece, 34 one-bedrooms (615 square feet), 82 twos (750 square feet), and a 1,200-square-foot three-bedroom – would rise over a basement garage for a total of 44 cars and secured parking for 197 bikes.
