Plans to raze the current Hayes & Kebab building and parking lot at 580 Hayes Street were first approved in 2005, with designs for a five-story residential care facility for 90 seniors over 3,000 square feet of ground floor retail to rise on the corner parcel.
The entitlements for the care facility expired without the project being built and new plans for the site have since been drawn. And as newly proposed, a five-story building with 29 market rate condos over 8,000 square feet of ground floor retail and a basement garage for 20 cars will rise on the Hayes Valley site. The retail space has been designed to accommodate up to three restaurants.
While the paperwork to secure the building permit for the project has already been filed in anticipation of the development being approved and a quick start, the public hearing for the project is slated to be held on June 26.
The Art Modern building that currently sits on the 580 Hayes Street site was constructed in 1939 as a neighborhood grocery store for Safeway, Inc.
