File No. 2014.0800E: Mid-Market Arts and Arts Education Special Use and Special Height Districts and File No. 2013.1049E: 950–974 Market Street Project

The proposed legislation would (1) amend the San Francisco Planning Code (Planning Code) to add Section 249.63 to create the Mid-Market Arts and Arts Education Special Use District (SUD), which would generally encompass parcels fronting Market Street on both sides of the street, from 5th Street to 8th Street (with the exception of the parcels affiliated with the Trinity Plaza development project [Block 3702, Lots 308 and 390] and those that comprise Hallidie Plaza and the United Nations Plaza), to permit projects that provide space for arts and arts education uses to exempt from the calculation of gross floor area ratio (FAR) 2 square feet (sf) of floor area for every 1 sf of arts and arts education uses provided; (2) add Planning Code Section 263.30 to create the new Mid-Market Arts and Arts Education Special Height and Bulk District (Special Height and Bulk District) within the SUD to permit height exceptions of up to a maximum building height of 200 feet on Block 0342, Lots 001, 002, 004, and 014 (950–974 Market Street) and 120 feet on Block 3703, Lot 060 (1089 Market Street) and Block 3703, Lot 066 (1053–1055 Market Street) for projects that obtain an FAR exemption pursuant to the SUD; (3) amend Planning Code Sectional Maps SU-01, SU-02, and HT-01 to map the SUD and Special Height and Bulk District; and (4) amend Planning Code Section 429.5 to require that the public art fee collected within the SUD be spent within the boundaries of or within 0.5 mile of the SUD.

950-974 Market Street Project. The 34,262-sf project site at 950–974 Market Street (0342/001, 002, 004, 014), is located on the northwest corner of Market and Turk Streets, in the C-3-G Downtown Commercial Use District and a 120-X Height and Bulk District. The project would involve the demolition of the existing buildings and parking structure on the site, and construction of an approximately 501,000-gross-square-foot (gsf) building containing approximately 65,000 gsf of arts and arts education uses, 312 dwelling units, a 292-room hotel, and 19,000 gsf of retail uses. The proposed building would consist of two towers—17 and 19 stories tall (approximately 176 and 200 feet in height, respectively)—connected by a mid-block five-story Arts Center (approximately 82 feet in height). The proposed project would include a one-level below-grade garage containing approximately 104 parking spaces, including two car-share spaces. The proposed project would require an FAR exemption, as provided by the SUD, and a height and bulk exemption, as provided by the Special Height and Bulk District.

An Office Variant to the proposed project would maintain the same building design, massing, and site plan as the proposed project. The overall square footage would be slightly reduced to 484,535 gsf compared to the proposed project. The Office Variant would include 112,400 gsf of office uses in place of the hotel uses, and a reduction of retail uses to 15,000 gsf.

A 120-Foot Variant to the proposed project would involve a 12-story building that is 120 feet in height, which is smaller in size compared to the proposed project and Office Variant. The 120-Foot Variant would be an approximately 396,000-gsf building containing 262 dwelling units, a 235-room hotel, and 18,500 gsf of retail uses. The 120-Foot Variant would not include dedicated arts space. The 120-Foot Variant would include a one-level below-grade garage containing approximately 104 parking spaces, including two car-share spaces. The 120-Foot Variant would not require an FAR exemption or a height and bulk exemption. The 120-Foot Variant would comply with the maximum floor area and building heights of the existing Planning Code use district and height and bulk district applicable to the site—the C-3-G Use District and 120-X Height and Bulk District.
