Whole Foods at 2675 Geary Boulevard

NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The project site is a 49,285-square-foot vacant retail space located on level 3 of the existing 250,843-square-foot City Center shopping center. The project site also includes parking lot C on level 3, which contains 117 parking spaces. City Center is located at the southeast corner of Masonic Avenue and Geary Boulevard in the Western Addition Neighborhood of San Francisco and occupies the block bounded by Geary Boulevard to the north, Masonic Avenue to the west, O’Farrell Street to the south, and Lyon Street to the east. The project site is located within the NC-3 (Moderate-Scale Neighborhood Commercial) zoning district and the 40-X and 80-D height and bulk districts. The project sponsor (Whole Foods Market) proposes to renovate an existing 49,825-square-foot vacant retail space for a new Whole Foods Market grocery store, of which 25,030 square feet would comprise the sales floor. The remaining 24,795 square feet would be dedicated to other uses: seating areas, checkout, self- checkout, and back-of-house uses such as offices, restrooms, freezers, kitchens, and storage areas for online orders. The grocery store would sell grocery items, prepared foods, medicine, household products, beverages, and other retail items. The store would have a lounge and seating area with a capacity of 50 people. The existing on-site parking lot C (on level 3) would be available for parking for Whole Foods Market customers. Freight and commercial loading activities would occur from an existing on-site 3,528-square-foot receiving area and adjacent loading dock, accessed from O’Farrell Street just east of Anzavista Avenue, via parking lot E (on level 2). No changes to vehicle parking, bicycle parking, loading, driveway access, or on-site circulation are proposed. In addition, no changes are proposed to the public right-of-way. The proposed project consists of interior renovations within the existing vacant retail space, replacement of existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and the addition of refrigeration equipment, an expansion of the rooftop penthouse, replacement of two dock levelers, and new exterior signage. Construction of the proposed project would not require excavation and is anticipated to occur over a 10-month period, beginning in October 2024. Construction staging is anticipated to occur within the existing vacant retail space and/or within parking lot C.
