PARK MERCED MIXED-USE PROJECT OVERVIEW AND DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT – INFORMATIONAL ONLY - Parkmerced is generally bounded by 19th Avenue to the east, Lake Merced Boulevard to the west, Holloway Avenue to the north, and Stanley Boulevard to the south.  The proposed project includes those lots owned by Parkmerced Investors, LLC, and includes Assessor’s Blocks 7303, 7303A, 7308-311, 7314, 7316, 7319-26, 7330-45, 7333 A-B, 7333E & 7353-7373.  Parkmerced is a rental housing complex constructed between 1941-1951 consisting of approximately 3,200 existing residential units and owned by Parkmerced Investors, LLC.  This is an Informational Hearing to provide an overview of the proposed project components and draft Development Agreement. Specific topics to be discussed at this session include transportation and housing (including rent and tenant relocation considerations). The project, which would be implemented over 20-30 years in multiple phases, includes the addition of approximately 5,700 net new residential units, the demolition and replacement of approximately 1,800 existing units which would remain subject to the San Francisco Rent Stabilization Ordinance, rent-protections and relocation rights for existing tenants, re-alignment and re-design of streets and blocks, re-alignment and improvement of the M Ocean View light rail line, the addition of new neighborhood serving retail and office space, new and re-configured public open spaces including neighborhood parks, pedestrian and bike paths, athletic fields, a new organic farm, and community gardens, overall transportation improvements, ecological hydrology improvements, and provision of renewable energy and water infrastructure. The draft Development Agreement would become the binding legal contract between the City and the Developer and would memorialize all of the public benefits and obligations of the Developer and associated agreements between both parties toward implementation of the Project.

Preliminary Recommendation: No Action Requested. Informational Discussion Only.
