Plans to redevelop the Dogpatch parcel at 2230 Third Street, upon which the one-story Leo’s Tire and Brake shop building which was most recently occupied by Skully Helmets (a crowdfunded tech company which was shuttered in 2016, its assets sold and the technology is now being developed in Atlanta) currently sits have been in the works since 2002, at which time a 20-unit residential project was being considered for the site.

In early 2013, plans for a seven-story building with around 40 residential units, a ground floor of live/work space, and a garage for 23 cars were drafted by D-Scheme Studio but subsequently abandoned.

And next week, plans for six-story building to rise up to 68 feet in height upon the 2230 Third Street site are slated to be approved by the City, plans which don’t include a residential component but will yield 36,500 square feet of medical services and life-science office and laboratory space, 3,000 square feet of ground floor retail fronting Third Street and a garage for 15 cars:

    Is this another case of UCSF sneaking more of their facilities into the neighborhood?

    If it was UCSF there would be no reason for City hearings or approvals, cuz UCSF can do whatever they want.

    Looks good. Lots and lots of housing going up in Dogpatch. Hopefully the City will get the T-line improvements done before long.

    UCSF professors have biotech startups on the side that pay the bulk of their salary. This space will mean they can easily get from campus to their side-gig for an afternoon checkin.

    Another building at the same max. height creating an even stronger wind tunnel down Third Street.

    Not likely they wait like the DTX until more $

    The T-line needs to loop out around BVHP and india basin and back over to Brisbane and up Geneva harney to balboa park station… Or loop down to ssf

    Maybe even a ferry terminal near the new shopping center… With rising sea levels and more density they need to figure out these issues before allowing more housing. Maybe even a hospital loop of BRT from Van-mess to Cesar Chavez and portrero hill to the T line make the loops and links first….
