Document Description
The proposed mixed-use project would be developed on an approximately 4-acre site in the southwest quadrant of Fifth and Mission Streets in Downtown San Francisco. The project would result in the retention and rehabilitation of two buildings on the site (the Chronicle Building at 901 Mission Street and the Dempster Printing Building at 447-449 Minna Street), the demolition of six existing buildings on the site, and the construction of five new buildings. Buildings would range in height from approximately 50 feet to 400 feet. After implementation of the project, the total square footage of renovated existing buildings and new construction would include approximately 1.85 million gsf of new and existing uses, comprising 1,132,200 gsf of office uses, (814,500 gsf of net new office space), 552,800 gsf of residential uses (approximately 748 dwelling units), up to 146,900 gsf of active ground floor retail/office/cultural/educational uses, and 18,200 gsf of arts/cultural/educational uses. In addition, the proposed project would include up to 888 motor vehicle parking spaces in three subterranean levels, and up to 270 bicycle parking spaces throughout the site. The project would also provide 34,000 sf of privately-owned publicly accessible open space throughout the site and would also result in changes to the site's vehicular and pedestrian circulation patterns, primarily to Mary Street.
