While we got some hints we’re still looking for the answer with regard to what’s in the works for the Chevron station at 2465 Van Ness (Bueller?). That being said, our piece unearthed a treasure trove of insight into shuttered gas stations across San Francisco.
One such nugget:
There may finally be some movement on the proposal for the 76 station at Market and Buchanan.
The Planning Commission will hear an application for conditional use authorization on March 26. After hearing about this possibility for more than 2 years it will be interesting to see details what is actually being proposed now that market conditions have changed. The CU application claims up to 115 residential units, ground floor commercial, and up to 91 parking spaces in an 85-X Height/Bulk district.
And with respect to the ex-station lot at Lombard and Pierce:
It is a completely contaminated site–Developer had it and walked away. No developer will touch that unless it is purchased contingent upon a total clean up.
UPDATE: Two unfortunate updates from plugged-in readers: 1. “I’ll be shocked if the Buchanan/Market proposal goes to the commission on the 26th. It has a lot of design issues to be resolved, expect a significant delay.”; and 2. “It will not likely fly with the neighborhood, the design screams “office building” even though it’s not. It’s out of compliance with the planning department’s design guidelines in more ways than I can count.”
UPDATE: The aforementioned design.
