Rezoning A Landmark To Enable Development Elsewhere


Sitting on a Mid-Market parcel which is zoned for building up to 120 feet in height, a reader worries that a zoning change in the works for 133-135 Golden Gate Avenue upon which the St. Boniface Church and Rectory sits could be a precursor to plans for razing the landmark church in order to make way for more "cookie cutter condos."

Fear not Landmark lovers nor proponents of density either, the proposed zoning change for the St. Boniface Church and Rectory site is simply intended to allow the church to sell off the development rights associated with the parcel's potential, allowing another site in the San Francisco to be developed with greater density but not any additional height, per se.

Some *censored* actually believed something would be torn down in this city?? LOL! Vandalized vacant warehouses are deemed historic in this town that knows how not.
