While the Planning Department is working on the Envirornmental Impact Report (EIR), a public scoping meeting for the proposed Parkmerced Redevelopment Project will be held tonight (June 8, 2009, from 6-8 PM at the YMCA Annex, 3150 20th Avenue).
The proposed Parkmerced Project is a long-term mixed-use development program to comprehensively re-plan and redesign the Parkmerced site, increase residential density, provide new commercial and retail services and transit facilities, and improve utilities within the development site. About 1,683 of the existing apartments located in 11 tower buildings would be maintained, and over a period of approximately 30 years, the remaining 1,538 existing apartments would be demolished in phases and fully replaced, and an additional 5,679 net new units would be added to the Project Site.
With project implementation, there would be a total of 8,900 units on the Project Site. The Proposed Project also includes construction of a new neighborhood core containing neighborhood-serving retail and office space, including such potential uses as a grocery store, restaurants, and banks.
Yet to be resolved (as far as we know), a bid to grant Parkmerced landmark status based on its place in “planning history,” courtyards and landscape design.
