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.

PRELIMINARY MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION

The initial evaluation conducted by the Planning Department determined that the following projects 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 Negative Declaration shall be made final, subject to any necessary modifications, 20 days from the date of this notice.

2014-000926ENV: 1270 Mission Street. The 16,220-square-foot project site, is located on the northwest corner of Mission and Laskie streets on the block bounded by Market Street to the north, Mission Street to the south, Eighth Street to the east, and Ninth Street to the west, within San Francisco's South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood. The project site consists of Assessor's Block 3701 Lots 020 and 021 and is within the C-3-G (Downtown-General Commercial) Use District and the 120-X Height and Bulk District.

The project site currently contains an existing single-story commercial building and surface parking. The proposed project would include demolition of the existing building, and construction of an approximately 273,684-gross-square-foot (gsf) building containing 195 dwelling units, and approximately 2,012 gsf of ground floor retail/restaurant uses, in a 13-story, 120-foot-tall building. The project sponsor is also considering a potential variant (Variant 1) that would entail construction of a 200-foot-tall, 21-story, 273,684-gross-square-foot (gsf) building that would include up to 299 dwelling units and 2,012 gsf of retail/restaurant uses. Under the proposed project and Variant 1, approximately 76 vehicle parking spaces would be provided, primarily in stackers, within a single basement level and part of the ground floor level. The proposed project and Variant 1 would also include 220 bicycle parking spaces.

The building height for Variant 1 would exceed the allowable height limit for the project site under the existing 120-X Height and Bulk District and, therefore, would require approval of an amendment to the Height and Bulk District Zoning Map. The project sponsor also proposes a Special Use District (SUD) that would increase the requirement for on-site affordable units to 20 percent. [SCHUETT]
