(AARON STARR)

1.                                 2011.0042V:   118 BRODERICK STREET, Lot 023 in Assessor’s Block 1237 in a RM-2 (Residential, Mixed, Moderate Density) Zoning District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District.

REAR YARD, NON-COMPLYING STRUCTURE AND EXPOSURE VARIANCES SOUGHT:   The proposal is to increase the number of dwelling units from one to two and to infill a side setback at the rear by constructing a 16’ long by 6’ wide one-story horizontal addition at the rear, south side of the building, which will align with the existing rear building wall.  The proposal also includes a spiral staircase that will project further into the rear yard at the rear south side of the building to provide access from the upper unit to the rear yard.

 

ARCHITECTURAL PLANS: The site plan and elevations of the proposed project are available on the Planning Department’s website at:  http://sf-planning.org/ftp/files/notice/2011.0042V.pdf

 

 

B.      REGULAR CALENDAR

 (AARON STARR)

2.                                 2011.0020V:   3206 JACKSON STREET, Lot 030 in Assessor’s Block 0973 in a RH-1 (Residential, House, Single-Family) Zoning District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District.

FRONT SETBACK VARIANCE SOUGHT:  The proposal is to change the front angled bay windows to square bay windows at the second and third floor of the 3-story, single-family home, and other façade alterations.

3.                                 2010.1097V:   324 PARK STREET, Lot 054 in Assessor’s Block 5721 in an RH-2 (Residential, House, Two-Family Dwelling) Zoning District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District.

                                                           

                                                            REAR YARD VARIANCE SOUGHT:  The proposal is to replace the existing second floor rear deck and expand by an additional 80 square feet.  The replacement deck will be 9 feet above grade.  The proposal will not add square footage to the existing single family dwelling.

PER SECTION 242(e)(2) OF THE PLANNING CODE the subject property is required to maintain a required rear yard of 45 percent of lot depth.  Additionally, any part of a front setback exceeding 5 feet may be applied to the rear yard.  The subject lot is 100 feet deep and has a front setback of 24 feet.  Therefore, the required rear yard is 26 feet.  The existing deck encroaches 1 foot into the required rear yard.  The proposed deck replacement will encroach an additional 3 feet into the required rear yard, leaving a rear yard of 22 feet.  Therefore, this project requires a rear yard variance.  

 

ARCHITECTURAL PLANS: The site plan and elevations of the proposed project are available on the Planning Department’s website at:  http://sf-planning.org/ftp/files/notice/2010.1097V.pdf

 

(GLENN CABREROS)

4.                                 2010.0394V:   2853-2857 BRODERICK STREET, Lot 002 in Assessor's Block 0947 in a RH-2 (Residential, House, Two-Family Dwelling) Zoning District and a 40-X height and bulk district.

REAR YARD AND NON-COMPLYING STRUCTURE VARIANCES SOUGHT:  The proposal is to raise the existing single-family residence three feet to insert a garage level and habitable rooms at said floor.  The proposal also includes alterations at the rear of the building, a portion of which is located within the required rear yard.

 

                                                            PER PLANNING CODE SECTION 134, the subject property is required to maintain a rear yard of approximately 20 feet.  The existing rear deck, stairs and bay window project a total of approximately 15 feet into the required rear yard.  The project proposes to retain the existing structures that project into the rear yard, including continued access to the rear yard via the rear deck and stairs. Therefore, the project requires a variance from the rear yard requirement (Section 134) of the Planning Code.


PER PLANNING CODE SECTION 188, a non-complying structure may be altered provided no new discrepancy is created.  The rear portions of the existing building, including the rear deck and stairs, are non-complying structures as they were originally constructed within the required rear yard. The project proposes to retain these non-complying features while raising the building. This new discrepancy would be contrary to Section 188.

 

ARCHITECTURAL PLANS: The site plan and elevations of the proposed project are available on the Planning Department’s website at:  http://sf-planning.org/ftp/files/notice/2010.0394V.pdf

5.                                 2010.0173V:   403 LAUREL STREET, Lot 001A in Assessor's Block 1019 in an RM-1 (Mixed, Low Density) Zoning District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District.

REAR YARD VARIANCE SOUGHT:  The proposal is to remove and reconstruct the existing stairs and deck at the rear of the subject property. The new approximately 7-foot high deck (with approximately 3-foot high railing on top) would be approximately 11 feet wide by 8 feet deep measured from the rear of the building. A stair projecting 8 feet from the rear building wall leading to grade would be constructed on the north side of the deck. An approximately 10-foot tall fire wall would be constructed along the north side property line to the rear property line and from grade to the top of the deck railing on the south.

PER SECTION 134 OF THE PLANNING CODE the subject property is required to maintain a rear yard of approximately 16 feet.  The proposed deck and stair would encroach approximately 8 feet into the required rear yard and result in a rear yard of approximately 8 feet.

 

ARCHITECTURAL PLANS: The site plan and elevations of the proposed project are available on the Planning Department’s website at:  http://sf-planning.org/ftp/files/notice/2010.0173V.pdf

6.                                 2011.0156V:   407 LAUREL STREET,  Lot 001C in Assessor's Block 1019 in an RM-1 (Mixed, Low Density) Zoning District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District.

REAR YARD VARIANCE SOUGHT:  The proposal is to reconstruct a demolished deck at the rear of the subject property. The approximately 8-foot high new deck would be approximately 8 feet wide by 8 feet deep measured from the rear of the building. A stair projecting 8 feet from the rear of the building leading to grade would be constructed on the north side of the deck. An approximately 12-foot high solid fire wall would be constructed from grade to the top of the proposed stair railing on the north and from grade to the top of the deck railing on the south.

PER SECTION 134 OF THE PLANNING CODE the subject property is required to maintain a rear yard of approximately 16 feet.  The proposed deck and stair would encroach approximately 8 feet into the required rear yard and result in a rear yard of 8 feet.

 

ARCHITECTURAL PLANS: The site plan and elevations of the proposed project are available on the Planning Department’s website at:  http://sf-planning.org/ftp/files/notice/2011.0156V.pdf

 

(SOPHIE HAYWARD)

7.                                 2011.0303V     3781 - 23rd STREET, Lot 037A in Assessor's Block 3650 in a RH-2 (Residential House, Two-Family Dwelling) Zoning District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District.

REAR YARD VARIANCE SOUGHT:  The proposal is to add a horizontal addition to the second floor of the rear of the subject building in order to accommodate an internal elevator and caregiver’s room.  The proposed addition would not extend beyond the existing rear building wall.

PER SECTION 134 OF THE PLANNING CODE the subject property is required to maintain a rear yard that measures 15’ in length.  The proposed rear addition would encroach approximately 8’10” into the required rear yard at the second level above grade, and would result in a rear yard of 6’2” in length; therefore, the project requires a variance from the rear yard requirement (Section 134) of the Planning Code.
