As we outlined before this year:

Obtained for $6.5 million, or a breathless “$6,069 for every sq. foot,” back again in Might of 2018, options to raze the current 1,071-square-foot dwelling on an outsized, 6,926-square-foot Dolores Heights good deal at 3669 21st Street, with “180 degree views from Twin Peaks to San Bruno Mountain,” have been drawn (though plans to surreptitiously “renovate” and “expand” the present residence have been abandoned).

And as proposed, a new 6,516-sq.-foot home, along with an integrated 854-square-foot “Accessory Dwelling Unit” (ADU) and a 1,200-sq.-foot garage, could increase on the web site, built by John Maniscalco Architectue for PBC Holdings (LLC).

Demolition and creating permits for the residence have been requested to expedite its progress, assuming it’s approved and survives any challenges.

And whilst the existing house on the great deal, which was crafted circa 1885, was at first considered an eligible historic source by Scheduling Workers, having after been house to James W. Hackett, a mentioned haiku poet who worked from (the) household in the 1960s, claimed resolve was subsequently revised (“due to further investigate delivered by the Project Sponsor” challenging Hackett’s significance).

The proposed job has because been given its essential environmental clearance to proceed. And with the aforementioned constructing permits shut to staying accepted, the project has been challenged.

From the asked for Discretionary Assessment(s) which had been recently filed by a range of neighbors:

“The lot for 3669 21st Street extends 138’ deep which is substantially more substantial than the heaps of adjacent houses [and the] sponsors have made use of this strange whole lot configuration to improve the dimensions of the proposed framework in a way that materially negatively impacts adjacent properties and the neighborhood.

The mass of proposed framework merged with the depth of the whole lot results in a noteworthy and unwelcome intrusion in to the eco-friendly house linked with adjacent attributes and the community. It is worth noting that two close by at the moment non-compliant constructions on this block are scheduled for demolition which will significantly improve community green area and align potential constructions with the letter and spirit of the Dolores Heights Distinctive Use District provisions. Regretably, the issue residence will reverse these neighborhood inexperienced area gains on a permanent basis.

The proposed venture will also appreciably cut down all-natural light publicity for two of 3 residential units (3677 and 3679) found straight away to the west of the topic house. In addition, the mass of the proposed structure will probable appreciably decrease light-weight publicity for the solitary household residence at 3663 21st Avenue, quickly to the east of the subject matter residence.”

“In brief, the unique configuration of this large amount has permitted the venture sponsors to progress a challenge that is inconsistent with the said intent of the Dolores Heights Special Use District, “to protect and give for an recognized place with a special character and equilibrium of constructed and normal ecosystem, with community and non-public look at corridors and panoramas, to preserve present properties, plant resources and planted spaces, to reduce unreasonable obstruction of look at and gentle by properties or plant materials, and to inspire enhancement in context and scale with established character and landscape.””

And in phrases of the requested variations and remedies:

“At a minimal, we think the sponsors need to comprehensive complete photo voltaic exposure research to determine air and light-weight impacts on adjacent properties. These scientific tests must be thoroughly reviewed and evaluated by the arranging section in advance of furnishing allowing approval. Extra importantly, we suggest modestly reducing the mass of the proposed composition in buy to be reliable with far more typical lot dimensions for the Dolores Heights Special Use District.”

Continue to keep in intellect that shadow (“solar”) experiments generally aren’t required for initiatives below 40 ft in height. We’ll retain you posted and plugged-in.
