Document Description
The project site (Assessor’s Block 1355, Lot 011) is a 45,520-square-foot L-shaped parcel on the northwest corner of the Arguello Boulevard and Lake Street intersection in San Francisco’s Presidio Heights neighborhood. The proposed project would expand and renovate the existing 88,690-gross-square-foot Congregation Emanu-El building, which contains religious institutional uses and an approximately 4,570-gross-square-foot preschool. The proposed project would result in a total net expansion of approximately 17,130 gross square feet, including 14,490 gross square feet of additional religious institutional space and approximately 2,640 gross square feet of additional preschool space, as well as 4,900 gross square feet of new rooftop open space with no increase in the permitted building height (40 feet). In total, the proposed project would result in an approximately 105,820-gross-square-foot building that would accommodate existing programs and provide additional space for the existing congregation and preschool enrollment; no changes to congregation size or preschool enrollment are proposed. Approximately 5,300 cubic yards of excavation is proposed. Streetscape improvements are proposed along Lake Street, Arguello Boulevard, and 2nd Avenue.
