The 17-story story building proposed to be built at 55 9th Street was approved by the Planning Commission at the end of 2007, but the now grassed over ground on the lot between Market and Mission has yet to be broken behind its chain link fence.
On Thursday the project sponsor will seek a three-year extension and window in which to start construction on the building which was designed to yield 260 housing units, 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and 113 parking spaces.
In conjunction, or perhaps exchange, for the extension, the project sponsor “has proposed an interim landscaping plan that would plant a mix of trees and understory along the 9th Street frontage, in order to soften and screen views of the site.”
More specifically, the sponsor has proposed a wall of 23 Pittosporum Tenuifolium and 11 Acer R. Bowhall trees along the fence line on 9th Street.
