Document Description
The California Barrel Company LLC, the project sponsor, proposes to implement the Potrero Power Station Mixed-Use Development project (referred to as the project or "project variant"), the redevelopment of an approximately 29-acre site, which encompasses the site of the former Potrero Power Plant that closed in 2011. Located along San Francisco's central bayside waterfront, the project would develop the site with a variety of residential, commercial, parking, community facilities, and open space land uses. The residential uses would include both market-rate and affordable housing, and the commercial uses would include office, research and development (R&D)/life science, retail, hotel, entertainment/ assembly, and production, distribution, and repair (PDR) uses. The project would also include public access areas and open space, playing fields and other active open space uses, shoreline improvements, an internal grid of public streets, shared public ways, and utilities infrastructure. The project would demolish about 20 existing structures on the project site, including three historic buildings, but the project would retain and restore three of the largest historic structures on the site. Overall, the proposed project could consist of up to approximately 5.4 million gross square feet (gsn of development. The proposed project would include amendments to the General Plan and Planning Code, creating a new Potrero Power Station Special Use District (SUD). The SUD would establish land use controls for the project site and incorporate design standards and guidelines in a new Potrero Power Station Design for Development (D for D) document. The Zoning Maps would be amended to change the current zoning to the proposed SUD zoning. These amendments would also modify the existing height limits on the portions of the project site not owned by the Port of San Francisco. The proposed rezoning would modify the existing height limits of 40 and 65 feet to various heights ranging from 65 to 240 feet. The proposed project would also include improvements to transportation and circulation, shoreline features, and utilities infrastructure.
