            15a.     2009.0694DV                                                                      (S. LAI: (415) 575-9087)

356-358 Elizabeth Street - northeast corner of Elizabeth and Blanche Streets; Lot 026 in Assessor’s Block 3652 - Request for Discretionary Review of Building Permit Application No. 2009.06.23.1112 proposing to expand the existing 2-unit building by constructing horizontal additions at the second and a vertical expansion at the third floors to raise the height by approximately 5-feet. The property is located within an RH-3 (Residential House, Three Units per Lot) Zoning District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District. This project triggers open space, rear yard, and non-complying structure variances.

Preliminary Recommendation: Do Not Take Discretionary Review and approve as proposed.

                                                                                                                                                                       

           15b.      2009.0694DV                                                                       (S. LAI: (415) 575-9087)

The construction at the second and third floor extends within the required rear yard of the existing non-complying structure, which triggers rear yard and non-complying structure variances. The further expansion within the required rear yard also lessens the required open space and would therefore require an open space variance. The property is located within an RH-3 (Residential House, Three Units per Lot) Zoning District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District. The Variance decision will be issued following the Commission's consideration of the Discretionary Review request.
