While currently only zoned for building up to 65-feet in height, the parcels upon which the San Francisco Tennis Club sits could be up-zoned for development up to 200-feet in height as part of San Francisco’s Central SoMa Plan.
Originally known as the Central Corridor Plan, the Central SoMa Plan could also clear the way for a modern 300-foot tower to rise at 330 Townsend Street.
In fact, if the High Rise alternative for the Central SoMa plan is adopted as mapped above, eight towers over 150-feet in height could rise between Bryant and Townsend and a tower up to 400-feet in height could rise on the Creamery parcel at the corner of Townsend and Fourth.
An alternative “mid-rise” plan would still result in four towers rising over 150-feet in the area but would limit the corner of Townsend and Fourth to 320-feet in height and the 330 Townsend parcel to 130 feet.
The required Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the draft Central SoMa Plan is expected to be finished by the end of the year and the public hearings should commence in early 2015.
