Image of preliminary design from Bryant Street project plan.

A reader who lives on the block of Bryant Street where a large housing development is slated to be built sent Mission Local the project’s preliminary plans. Submitted by developer Nick Podell Company to the Planning Department in December 2013, the plans detail the rough design ideas of the proposed building which would include 276 rental units.

The plan includes rough depictions of the project’s main structures, two buildings separated by a courtyard, and gives a little bit more details about the number of units and square feet designated for each unit.

  1. Yeah, just wait till all the interesting people leave or get pushed out. San Francisco is becoming a nightmare, and Oakland is not far behind. Maybe you can create an interesting app? Or creativity app? Download a personality perhaps?

  2. A apartment building worthy of suburban Dallas!
    Tartine is moving in at 18th and Alabama. This whole area will soon be void of any artist or working class families.
    But we do need housing for the rich white guys moving here from NY.

  3. Put all your savings into Tech stocks! You can’t lose… you should borrow whatever you can, and put that in the market too.

    Remember: the old rules (like that profits and losses stuff) no longer apply.

    By the time this huge cardboard apartment building is finished, your stocks will have earned you enough to afford a studio apartment there.

    1. If you knew what was going to happen in the markets, you’d be the richest person on the planet, rather than a bitter renter.

      For all the ups and downs on tech sticks, they have always made higher highs and higher lows, and the Nasdaq has increased twelve-fold since 1987.

      We should take financial advice from you? I don’t think so.

      1. You’re right. Who could have predicted that the enormous development slated for 18th and Bryant in the 1990s–the one for which 100 artists were evicted and their colony torn down–would become an empty hole in the ground for YEARS after the last tech crash?

        Déjà vu all over again…

      2. So we’re in agreement – tech stocks will keep going up!

        I liquidated the structured settlement from my accident (through JD Wentworth – excellent company BTW) and put it all in Tesla stock because they say electric cars are the future.

        I’m planning to get all stainless steel appliances and furniture for the new apartment once I get rich from not working.

        1. You may mock but a good number of people make a very good living from the markets.

          And you don’t need stocks to go up all the time to make money either. You can profit from down markets just as easily. Or profit from the volatility itself.

          Oh, and the real beauty of it is that it is lightly taxed. In fact, you can make millions and the city doesn’t collect a penny in tax. Hate on, brother, but I’ll take that twelve-fold appreciation any day.

          1. Stock traders invest in nothing and don’t pay their fair share for the infrastructure in the communities in which they live. They are leeches, living off of the taxes of others.

  4. I wish it was slightly taller but this looks great. It includes lots of affordable housing, and increasing the overall supply of housing benefits the neighborhood. Please build.
