A blighted building on the corner of 15th and Shotwell streets, which was formerly used as a pot growth house, is set to become a five-story housing complex, according to the plugged-in folks at SocketSite.
Purchased for $1,450,000 [in October of 2012], a new plan has been quietly pitched to Planning with a proposal to demolish the building at 1450 15th Street and construct a 5-story, 50-foot tall building with 23 dwelling units and parking for 17 cars and 12 bikes.
Designs for the proposed development have since been drawn (click to enlarge), the project’s environmental review is underway, and building permits have been requested.
The building has been empty since June of last year, when a pair of potpreneurs were caught growing illegal pot. And they would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for a fire that exposed the operation.
