Document Description
California Governor Newsom directed the California Department of General Services (DGS) to identify excess state properties as potential affordable housing development sites (Executive Order N-06-19). The proposed project would include demolition of the existing parking lots and development of two buildings providing affordable residential units. Overall, the project would consist of 295 residential units that are 100 percent affordable and permanently deed-restricted, and 105 surface parking spaces to replace the displaced California Employment Development Department (EDD) parking spaces on the ground floors of the buildings. The 8-story Turk Street building would consist of 105 residential units, open space, and common space. The 9-story Golden Gate Avenue building would consist of 190 residential units, open space, and common space.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 32; Section 15332 In-Fill Development
Reasons for Exemption
DGS has determined that the project qualifies for Class 32 exemption because the project is consistent with applicable objective general plan standards and criteria for multi-family residential development. It is an allowable land use in the City and County of San Francisco's land use and zoning designations and the project meets all criteria for Class 32; less than 5 acres, within City and County of San Francisco limits, surrounded by urban uses, not in an area with value as habitat for endangered, rare or threatened species, is adequately served by all required utilities and public services. DGS confirms that no exceptions apply which would preclude the use of an exception for this project.
