The project sponsor, SFMOMA, proposes to expand the existing SFMOMA located at 151 Third Street (Assessor Block 3722, Lot 78) and relocate Fire Station No. 1 from its existing 676 Howard Street location (Assessor Block 3722, Lot 28) to 935 Folsom Street (Assessor Block 3753, Lot 140). The sponsor proposes demolition of the existing 7,620-square-foot, 4-story-over-basement building at 670 Howard Street (Assessor Block 3727, Lot 027), and demolition of the existing 4,400-square-foot, 2-story Fire Station No. 1 at 676 Howard Street as well as vacation of a 115-by-30-foot land-locked portion of Hunt Street located between 151 Third and 670 and 676 Howard Street to accommodate the museum expansion. SFMOMA would construct an approximately 200-foot-tall, 230,000-square-foot building addition at the rear of the 151 Third Street building and on the 670-676 Howard Street parcels and the vacated Hunt Street right-of-way extending from Minna Street to Howard Street in order to display the museum’s existing and future art collections and to consolidate its support functions on site. The proposed expansion wing would connect to the existing museum and accommodate expanded gallery, public and support spaces. Portions of the existing museum would be renovated, including an expanded restaurant. The ticketing lobby now located in the atrium would be relocated to the second floor, so that the ground floor of the museum, including the Third Street atrium and new ground floor gallery on Howard Street would be publicly accessible without charge. The existing building at 935 Folsom Street (formerly used for apparel manufacturing and commercial laundry, currently vacant) would be demolished, the site subdivided, and a new 15,000-square-foot, 2-story-plus-mezzanine, approximately 34-foot-tall replacement fire station would be constructed on the northern portion of the parcel fronting Folsom Street. At-grade parking would be provided for 15-vehicles on the site. On the southern portion of the 935 Folsom Street site, a 4-story, approximately 43-foot-tall future residential building would be constructed comprising up to 13 residential units and 10 off-street parking spaces in the building’s basement level.

The 151 Third Street site is located in a C-3-O (Downtown Office) Use District and a 500-I Height and Bulk District. 670 Howard Street is located in a C-3-S (Downtown Support) Use District and a 320-I Height and Bulk District. 676 Howard Street is located in a P (Public) and the 320-I Height and Bulk District.

No amendments to existing height districts are proposed.

The sponsor proposes demolition of the existing 7,620-square-foot, 4-story-over-basement building at 670 Howard Street (Assessor's Block 3722, Lot 027), and demolition of the existing 4,400-square-foot, 2-story Fire Station No. 1 at 676 Howard Street as well as vacation of a 115-by-30-foot land-locked portion of Hunt Street located between 151 Third and 670 and 676 Howard Street to accommodate the museum expansion. SFMOMA would construct an approximately 200-foot-tall, 230,000-square-foot building addition at the rear of the 151 Third Street building and on the 670-676 Howard Street parcels and the vacated Hunt Street right-of-way extending from Minna Street to Howard Street in order to display the museum’s existing and future art collections and to consolidate its support functions on site. The existing building at 935 Folsom Street would be demolished, the site subdivided, and a new 15,000-square-foot, 2-story-plus-mezzanine, approximately 34-foot-tall replacement fire station would be constructed on the northern portion of the parcel fronting Folsom Street, including at-grade parking. On the southern portion of the 935 Folsom Street site, a 4-story, approximately 43-foot-tall future residential building would be constructed comprising up to 13 residential units and 10 off-street parking spaces in the building’s basement level. The 151 Third Street site is located in a C-3-O (Downtown Office) Use District and a 500-I Height and Bulk District. The 670 Howard Street site is located in a C-3-S (Downtown Support) Use District and a 320-I Height and Bulk District.
