Staff-initiated Discretionary Review of Building Permit Application Number 2001/0215/2255S, proposing to reduce the legal number of dwelling units from 2 to 1, in an RH-2 (Residential House, Two-Family) District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District.

21. 2001.0498D (WOLOSHYN: 558-6612)

2339 GREEN STREET - north side between Steiner and Pierce Streets; Lot 041 in Assessor’s Block 0559. Request for Discretionary Review of Building Permit Application Number 2001-0130-0997S, proposing to add a one-story deck, with a depth of six feet, at the rear of the existing house, in an RH-2 (Residential House, Two-Family) District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District.

Preliminary Recommendation: Take Discretionary Review and approve the project with modifications.

22a. 2000.138DV (WANG: 558‑6335)

4038 17TH STREET - north side between Castro and Douglass Streets, Lot 011 in Assessor's Block 2623. Request of Discretionary Review of Building Demolition Permit Application No. 9814005 and Building Permit Application No. 9814006. The proposal would alter an existing vacant one‑story over garage, single‑family dwelling into a three‑story over garage, three‑family dwelling in an RH‑3 (Residential, House, Three‑Family) District and a 40‑X Height and Bulk District. Note: This project was previously heard by the Commission on April 6, 2000 and May 10, 2001, respectively. Following public testimony on April 6, 2000, the Commission moved to continue the hearing indefinitely, so the Project Sponsor could develop a design that (1) does not require demolition of the existing structure (the demolition building permit application will be withdrawn by the project sponsor); (2) retains a substantial portion of the front part of the Victorian house; and (3) allows three dwelling units to be constructed on the site. The revised project proposes to retain approximately 42 feet of the front of the existing building which includes both exterior side walls and some of the interior walls. The existing facade would be preserved and moved forward by approximately 3 feet 4 inches and lowered by approximately 4 feet. The facade would be attached to a reinforced and expanded structure constructed between its new location and the existing portions of the sidewalls, which are to remain in place. The sidewalls would be extended downward by approximately 4 feet and the 3‑foot 11‑inch parapet would be removed. The revised project would further include building additions above and behind the retained portion of the existing building, resulting in a three‑story over garage, three‑family dwelling. The revised project would also require the justification of a rear yard variance, which will be heard by the Zoning Administrator concurrently with the discretionary review.

Preliminary Recommendation: Because the revised project has been determined by the Department of Building Inspection to not require a demolition permit under the Building Code, the Planning Department believes that it is consistent with the Commission's instruction to not demolish the existing house as communicated on April 6, 2000. However, as to whether or not, the proposal is consisted with the Commission's second instruction of substantial retention of front part of the building must be a decision of the current members of the Commission. No specific positions or instructions were provided on April 6, 2000. In evaluating whether substantial retention has been achieved, the Commission should consider the removal of the front facade from the foundation (temporary storage off‑site) and reattaching a restored facade 3 feet forward and 4 feet lower than the current location. It is the Department's position that the restored facade can and should be reattached at the existing location with some minor alteration at the base to accommodate the modified driveway entrance.

22b. 2000.138DV (WANG: 558‑6335)

4038 17TH STREET - north side between Castro and Douglass Streets; Lot 011 in Assessor's Block 2623 in an RH‑3 (Residential, House, Three‑Family) District and a 40‑X Height and Bulk District. REAR YARD VARIANCE SOUGHT: Subject to Discretionary Review by the Planning Commission, the current proposal is to alter an existing vacant one‑story over garage, single‑family dwelling by remodeling it into a three‑story over garage, three‑family dwelling in an RH‑3 (Residential, House, Three‑Family) District and a 40‑X Height and Bulk District. Note: This project was previously heard by the Commission on April 6, 2000 and May 10, 2001, respectively. Following public testimony on April 6, 2000, the Commission adopted a Motion to continue indefinitely, so the Project Sponsor could develop a design that (1) does not require demolition of the existing structure, (2) retains a substantial portion of the front part of the Victorian house and (3) allows three units to be constructed on the site. The revised project proposes to retain approximately 42 feet of the front of the existing building which includes both exterior side walls and some of the interior walls. The existing facade would be preserved and moved forward by approximately 3 feet 4 inches and lowered by approximately 4 feet. The facade would be attached to a reinforced and expanded structure constructed between its new location and the existing portions of the sidewalls, which are to remain in place. The sidewalls would be extended downward by approximately 4 feet and the 3‑foot 11‑inch parapet would be removed. The revised project would further include building additions above and behind the retained portion of the existing building, resulting in a three‑story over garage, three‑family dwelling. The revised project would also require the justification of a rear yard variance which will be heard by the Zoning Administrator concurrently with the discretionary review.

Section 136(c)(25) of the Planning Code allows enclosed and unenclosed extensions of buildings, as permitted obstructions, to extend no more than 12 feet into the required open area, provided that the structure shall be limited to a height not exceeding the floor level of the second floor of occupancy, excluding the ground story, at the rear of the building on the subject property, in which case the structure shall be no closer than 5 feet to any interior side lot line. Section 134(c) requires a minimum rear yard of approximately 35 feet, measured from the mid‑point of the rear property line for the subject lot. The new addition to be constructed behind the retained portion of the front part of the existing building would be three stories tall, extending 12 feet into the required rear yard to be within approximately 33 feet 6 inches of the rear property line and would encroach entirely into the required 5‑foot separation from the east side lot line and from the west side lot line, respectively.
