Document Description
The Project Area includes the area surrounding the Balboa Park Station and along Geneva, Ocean and San Jose Avenues. The proposed Balboa Park Station Area Plan (the proposed project) includes amendments to the San Francisco General Plan and specific Planning Code changes related to zoning districts and height and bulk controls in the Project Area. The proposed project would introduce a new zoning district, NC-T (Neighborhood Commercial Transit), into the Project Area that would potentially increase transit oriented mixed use developments. Improvements to the existing streetscape, transportation system/transit facilities, and open space, as well as new urban design policies, may result from implementation of the Area Plan. The Area Plan also includes proposals for mixed-use, transit oriented development in the Project Area. In particular, the Area Plan icludes proposals for the redevelopment of two specific parcels, the Phelan Loop Site and the Kragen Auto Parts Site. Implementation of the Area Plan would result in a net increase of about 1,780 new residential units, and about 104,680 net new gross square feet of commercial development in the Project Area by the year 2025. A net increase of about 90-200 jobs is also expected in the Project Area by the year 2025 as a result of implementation of the Area Plan.
