NOTICE OF CANCELLATION
SAN FRANCISCO
PLANNING COMMISSION
Thursday
October 24, 2002

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE SAN FRANCISCO PLANNING COMMISSION FOR OCTOBER 24, 2002 IS CANCELED.

EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2002: WITH THE PASSAGE OF PROPOSITION D IN MARCH 2002, THE CHARTER OF THE CITY AND COUNTY OF SAN FRANCISCO WAS AMENDED TO AFFECT THE APPOINTMENTS AND TERMS OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION. NOMINEES MADE BY BOTH THE MAYOR AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MUST BE CONFIRMED BY THE FULL BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. AT PRESENT, ONLY THREE NOMINEES HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED--NOT ENOUGH TO HOLD A LEGAL MEETING OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION. UNTIL THE PROCESS IS COMPLETE AND THE NOMINEES HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED AND SWORN IN, THE CITY AND COUNTY OF SAN FRANCISCO DOES NOT HAVE THE REQUIRED PLANNING COMMISSION TO HEAR AND ACT ON LAND USE MATTERS. THEREFORE, THE ITEMS LISTED BELOW ARE CONTINUED AS INDICATED:

          1.          2000.1090E           (B. HELBER: (415) 558-5968)
                    300 SPEAR STREET - Rezoning of parcels in the Rincon Hill neighborhood (the  rezoning project ) and a mixed-use development of approximately 1,560,000 gross square feet (gsf) at 300 Spear Street (the  development project ). The property is currently used as a surface parking lot. The rezoning project includes rezoning Lots 1 and 8 in Assessor's Block 3745, and part of Lot 1 in Assessor's Block 3746 from the existing P (Public) to a zoning district that allows private development. The requested rezoning is from P (Public) with height limits of 105, 150 and 200 feet to RC-4 (Residential-Commercial Combined: High Density) with 300- and 400-foot height limits. In addition, a Planning Code text amendment is under review to create a new Residential/Commercial subdistrict under the Rincon Hill Special Use District overlay, and amendments to the Rincon Hill Area Plan, a part of the San Francisco General Plan. [The rezoning is in conjunction with the proposed development at 201 Folsom Street on Assessor's Block 3746, Lot 1]. The third parcel to be rezoned is 345 Main Street, Lot 8 in Assessor's Block 3745. The development project would consist of up to 820 residential units, about 60,000 gsf of retail, about 50,000 gsf of office space, and about 960 underground parking spaces. Eighty-foot-tall building bases would be built to the property lines on Spear, Folsom and Main Streets; the bases would enclose a landscaped courtyard at the third level. Two residential towers would be constructed above the bases to total heights of approximately 350 feet and 400 feet above the ground surface level, respectively.
                    Preliminary Recommendation: No Action Required
                    (Continued to November 14, 2002)

It would include about 880 enclosed parking spaces and five loading spaces for the use of the development, and about 270 enclosed replacement parking spaces for the use of the USPS and other government agencies. An 80-foot-tall base would cover the site. Two residential towers would be constructed above the base to total heights of approximately 350 feet and 400 feet above the ground surface level. The project would require a subdivision of Lot 1 to separate the development site from the Postal Service Annex.
