Case No. 2016-010544CUA: 824 HYDE STREET – east side of Hyde Street, between Bush and Sutter Streets, Lot 017 in Assessor’s Block 0280 (District 3) - Request for Conditional Use Authorization pursuant to Planning Code Section 209.3, 253, 303, and 303 (g) to establish a new Hotel Use exceeding the use size limitations, and to permit a building exceeding 50 feet within a RC Zoning District. The Project Site is located within the RC-4 (Residential-Commercial, High Density) Zoning District and 80-A Height and Bulk District. The Project Site is currently vacant; it was previously occupied by a four-story, eight-unit residential building that was destroyed by fire in 2010. The Project proposes to construct an approximately 64-foot-tall (up to maximum height of 69 feet, inclusive of mechanical equipment and elevator over-run), six-story-over-basement, 13,367 gross square foot (gsf) building on a partially down-sloping vacant lot. The proposed building would contain a Hotel Use (A Retail Sales and Service Use), providing thirty (30) tourist guest rooms. The Project would provide six (6) Class I bicycle parking spaces in the basement and two (2) Class II bicycle parking spaces on Hyde Street. No off-street parking is proposed; the Project may include a passenger loading zone directly in front of the subject property (subject to SFMTA approval). The resulting height of the building would exceed 50 feet in height. Even though the underlying Bulk and Height District (80-A) would allow for a taller structure, the Code requires approval by the Planning Commission according to the procedures for conditional use approval in Section 303 of this Code. A Planning Commission approval at the public hearing would constitute the Approval Action for the project for the purposes of CEQA, pursuant to San Francisco Administrative Code Section 31.04(h).

PLANNING DEPARTMENT ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW NOTICE

Notice is hereby given to the general public of the following actions under the Environmental Review Process. Review of the documents concerning these projects can be arranged by calling (415) 575-9025 and asking for the staff person indicated.

NOTICE OF HEARING ON DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT FOR THE FOLLOWING

The initial evaluation conducted by the Planning Department determined that the following project(s) may have significant effects on the environment and that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) must be prepared.

2013.0208E: Seawall Lot 337 and Pier 48 Mixed-Use Project – The Seawall Lot 337 and Pier 48 Mixed-Use Project site is an approximately 28-acre area (Assessor’s Block 8719/Lot 002 and Lot 006 and Assessor’s Block 9900/Lot 048) in the Mission Bay neighborhood. This area includes: the  14.2-acre  Seawall  Lot  337;  the  0.3-acre  strip  of  land  on  the south  side  of  Seawall  Lot  337,  referred  to  as  Parcel  P20;  the  6.0-acre  Pier 48;  the existing  2.2-acre  China  Basin  Park;  and  5.4  acres  of  streets  and  access  areas  within  or  adjacent  to the  boundaries  of  Seawall  Lot  337  and  Pier  48. Seawall Lot 337 and Parcel P20 are in a Mission Bay Open Space (MB-OS)  Use District and the Mission Rock Height and Bulk District. Pier 48 is located in a Heavy Industrial (M-2) Use District and the Mission Rock Height and Bulk District.

The project would amend the San Francisco Planning Code, adding a new Special Use District (SUD), which would establish land use zoning controls for the project site and incorporate design controls into the proposed SUD. As envisioned, the proposed project would entail development of a mixed-use, multi-phase project at Seawall Lot 337, rehabilitation and reuse of Pier 48, and construction of approximately 5.4 acres of net new open space, for a total of approximately 8 acres of open space on the project site. The project would include 2.7 to 2.8 million gross square feet (gsf)  of mixed uses on 11 proposed development blocks.  The mixed-use development would comprise approximately 1.1 to 1.6 million gsf of residential uses (estimated at 1,000 to 1,600 units, consisting of both market-rate and affordable housing), approximately 972,000 to 1.4 million gsf of commercial uses, and 241,000 to 244,800 gsf of active/retail uses on the lower floors of each block. Additionally, the project would include approximately 1.1 million gsf of aboveground and underground parking (approximately 3,100 parking spaces) and rehabilitation of 242,500 gsf of industrial, restaurant, active/retail, tour, exhibition, and meeting space within Pier 48 for reuse by an industrial use, specifically analyzed as a proposed brewery. The 11 blocks on Seawall Lot 337 could be developed with building heights ranging from 90 feet (approximately 7 stories) to a maximum of 240 feet (approximately 23 stories) for the tallest building, excluding the mechanical and other accessory penthouse roof enclosures. Construction is projected to begin in 2017 and would be phased over an approximately six-year period, concluding in 2023. The project also includes four variants that consider a district-wide heating and cooling system, an entertainment venue, reconfiguration of the proposed parking, and an on-site hotel. [Sheyner]

Notice is hereby given to the general public as follows:

  1. A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) has been prepared by the Planning Department in connection with this project. A copy of the report is available for public review and comment online at http://sf-planning.org/sfceqadocs. CDs and paper copies are also available at the Planning Information Center (PIC) at 1660 Mission Street, 1st Floor. Referenced materials are available for review at the Planning Department’s office at 1650 Mission Street, Suite 400, as part of Case File No. 2013.0208E.
  2. The DEIR found that implementation of the project would result in the following significant environmental effects that could not be mitigated to a less than significant level: transportation, noise, air quality, and wind.
  3. A public hearing on this DEIR and other matters will be held by the Planning Commission on Thursday, June 1, 2017 in Room 400, City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, beginning at 10:00 a.m. or later (call 558-6422, the week of the hearing for a recorded message giving a more specific time).
  4. Public comments will be accepted from April 26, 2017 to 5:00 p.m. on June 12, 2017. Written comments should be addressed to: Tania Sheyner, Environmental Coordinator, San Francisco Planning Department, 1650 Mission Street, Suite 400, San Francisco, CA 94103. Comments received at the public hearing and in writing will be responded to in a Comments and Responses.

PRELIMINARY MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION

The initial evaluation conducted by the Planning Department determined that the following project could not have a significant effect on the environment, and that no environmental impact report is required. Accordingly, a Preliminary Mitigated Negative Declaration has been prepared.

Public recommendations for amendment of the text of the finding, or any appeal of this determination to the Planning Commission (with $562 filing fee) must be filed with the Department within 20 days following the date of this notice. In the absence of an appeal, the Mitigated Negative Declaration shall be made final, subject to any necessary modifications, 20 days from the date of this notice.

2013-1383ENV: 3516-3526 Folsom Street - The proposed project involves the construction of two single-family residences on two vacant lots along the west side of an unimproved portion of Folsom Street, and the construction of the connecting segment of Folsom Street to provide vehicle and pedestrian access to the project site. Each single-family home would be 27 feet tall, two stories over-garage with two off-street vehicle parking spaces accessed from a twelve-foot-wide garage door.  The 3516 Folsom Street building would be approximately 2,230 square feet in size and the 3526 Folsom Street building would be approximately 2,210 square feet. The proposed buildings would be supported by a shallow building foundation using a mat slab with spread footings. The proposed Folsom Street extension improvements would include an approximately 20-foot-wide road with an approximately 10-foot-wide sidewalk which would provide public access to Bernal Heights Boulevard/Bernal Heights Park. The proposed project would not create direct vehicular access to Bernal Heights Boulevard. Construction of the street extension would require the removal of the existing landscaped area within the public right-of-way where Folsom Street meets Chapman Street.  The proposed project would include the installation of new street trees and street lighting on the west side of the street. The project would also install utilities for the four vacant lots located on the “paper street” segment of Folsom Street. Construction would continue for approximately 12 months and would require excavation of up to approximately 10 feet below the existing ground surface. [Horner]
