The public hearing to review and comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed development of 262 new condos, two floors of commercial space and parking for 245 cars in two 13-story towers on Pine Street between Van Ness and Franklin will be held this afternoon.
The 1634-1690 Pine Street parcel was originally proposed for development with plans for 282 condos to be built in a seven-story podium from which a 25-story and 12-story tower would rise but those plans were cancelled in 2007 having raised concerns among area residents.
“People don’t want more residential. That’s what it comes down to,” a San Francisco Planner was quoted as saying about the neighbors’ concerns at the time.
