8. 2006.0868E (M. Jacinto: 415/575-9033)
800 PRESIDIO - southeast corner of Presidio Avenue and Sutter Streets (Assessor's Block 1073, Lot 13) The project sponsors, Booker T. Washington Community Services Center in association with the San Francisco Mayor's Office of Housing, propose to demolish the existing 12,600-square-foot Booker T. Washington Community Center building, presumed an historic resource for purposes of environmental review and to construct a mixed-use structure, which would replace and enlarge the community/recreation center and include new residential units. The project would encompass approximately 70,000 square feet of space on six levels, five above grade and one below at a height of 55 feet along Presidio Avenue. The roughly 19,000 square-foot community center space would accommodate the center’s current and future programs and would also include a gymnasium, meeting space, and several classrooms. The project would include 47 residential units in a mix of unit sizes, half of which would be designated below market rate (BMR) rental housing for emancipated foster youth and the other half BMR units available to both individuals and families. The project proposes 22 parking spaces in a basement garage accessible from a proposed curb cut on Sutter Street. The subject property is within an RM-1 Zoning District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District. The sponsor seeks to amend the Planning Code by establishing a "Presidio-Sutter Special Use District" (SUD) to modify building height and bulk, density, off-street parking, year yard configuration, and open space requirements. The proposed SUD would necessitate text and map amendments (rezoning), which would require approval by the Board of Supervisors.
Note: This public hearing is intended to assist the Commission in its preparation of comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR). Comments made by members of the public at this hearing will not be considered comments on the DEIR and may not be responded to in the Final EIR (FEIR). The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing to receive comments on the DEIR on August 5, 2010. Written comments on the DEIR will be accepted at the Planning Department until 5:00 p.m., August 10, 2010.
Preliminary Recommendation: The Historic Preservation Commission will discuss the DEIR and may provide oral comments or may direct staff to prepare written comments on the adequacy of the DEIR, pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
