Walden Development Mission Bay Parcels
While not yet approved by either Planning nor Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Health Plan board of directors, Walden Development is in contract to sell Kaiser Permanente half of its four parcel development site between 16th and 17th Streets west of Mississippi on which to construct a medical office building. From the Business Times:

In addition to the medical office building, Walden Development, which owns four parcels along 16th and 17th streets, is seeking approval of 200 units of housing on a portion of the land. Under the proposed scenario, the site — now occupied by the office moving and storage company Corovan — would be divided into two parcels, with the Kaiser building on one portion and the residential project next door. Walden bought the four parcels in March of 2006 for $12.4 million, according to city records.

The development site is over 150,000 square feet and includes four properties: 903 16th St., 941 16th St., 1200 17th St., and 1210 17th St. Josh Smith, president of Walden Development, said the medical office building would front along 16th Street, with the residential complex built out on 17th Street.

    Interesting choice for the location. Last I heard, condos were going on the triangular lot across 16th, and there are already residences across Mississippi. With the nearest parking garage across the freeway up owens, they’ll have to put in their own or face troubles.
    There are still empty parcels along owens, as well as empty parcels and empty for-lease buildings on 3rd, nearer to the hospital and closer to parking, as well as surrounded by medically-related offices.

    There are already UCSF hospital and SFGH nearby. Is there an economic reason for the medical facilities to congregate together?

    Kaiser’s main outpatient facilities on Geary are not very convenient for those living in the southern neighborhoods. it’s actually easier to go to the Kaiser Daly City office from Noe or Bernal. I suspect that’s why they’re considering this location. I don’t know if there is an overt economic reason for Kaiser and UCSF Mission Bay to be near each other (SFGH is actually not that close to this location) but maybe Kaiser is just piggybacking on the expected development in this area that will probably happen after the UCSF facilities open in 2014-2015.

    Now apartments, not condos, but a new mixed-use development slated to rise across the street is correct. Details on the design: Revised Plans For Daggett Place (AKA 1000 16th St.) Up For Approval.

    This doesn’t bode well for the beloved Bottom of the Hill.
