296 TOWNSEND STREET, a landlocked lot between 4th, Brannan, Townsend, and Lusk Streets; Lot 163 in Assessor's Block 3787: Request for a Rear Yard Modification to allow the creation of a new dwelling unit without the required rear yard. The proposal is to convert an existing live/work unit into a dwelling unit and to perform interior and exterior alterations.

The subject property is within an SSO Mixed-Use Zoning District and a 50-X Height and Bulk District.
