Major Excelsior District Development Newly Detailed and Phased

by SocketSite

Having been expanded to include the Safeway parcel and parking lot at 4950 Mission Street, in addition to the Valente Marini Perata Funeral home parcel at 4840 Mission, the proposed development to rise up to seven stories in height across the Excelsior District site would now yield a total of 428 apartments, 175 of which would be offered at below market rates (i.e., “affordable”).

While the project as proposed would level the existing 36,000 square foot Safeway in the middle of the site, a brand new 53,000 square foot Safeway would rise upon the funeral home parcel, with the aforementioned affordable residential units above, 10,000 square feet of new space for the Mission Neighborhood Health Center on the second floor, and an underground garage for 126 cars below.

And as designed by Van Meter Williams Pollack for Bridge Housing and the Emerald Fund, the existing Safeway would remain in place and open for business until the replacement store was completed, at which point the six-story, market-rate portion of the development would break ground, along with an additional 13,500 square feet of ground floor retail space, a second underground garage for 204 cars and a mid-block public plaza and passageway running from Alemany to Mission.
