810, 816 & 826 VAN NESS AVENUE - east side between Eddy and Willow Streets, Lots 006, 007 & 008 in Assessor's Block 0739 - Request for variances from rear yard, dwelling unit exposure and off-street parking requirements per Planning Code Sections 134, 140 and 155.  The proposal is to demolish the three existing one-story commercial buildings and to construct an 88-foot tall mixed-use building with up to 52 dwelling units, approximately 2,700 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and up to 52 parking spaces.  In lieu of providing a rear yard equal to 25 percent of the total lot depth, the project is proposed to be set back 12 feet from the southern property line for a depth of approximately 80 feet as measured from the rear property line.  Eighteen units located along the south side of the proposed building (at all levels above the ground floor) do not meet the dwelling unit exposure requirement, which states that all dwelling units shall face directly onto a Code-complying required rear yard or a public street.  The eighteen units that do not meet the exposure requirement face the 12-foot setback proposed along the southern property line.  52 parking spaces are proposed for the 52 units, however a parking variance is sought for two spaces (for a total of 50 independently-accessible parking spaces) to accommodate potential future revisions to the structural design at the basement levels.  The project is located in an RC-4 (Residential-Commercial Combined, High Density) District, the Van Ness Special Use District and a 130-V Height and Bulk District.

425 First Street (One Rincon Hill) - Motion to Approve Mello-Roos Agreement to Satisfy Rincon Hill Community Infrastructure Impact Fee Requirement per Section 318.3(f) - The Planning Commission approved a project at 425 First Street on August 4, 2005, that includes approximately 709 dwelling units. Planning Code Section 318.3(b)(i) requires payment of $11.00 per net occupiable square foot of residential development for the Rincon Hill Community Infrastructure Fund prior to issuance of site permit. The project construction is divided into two phases, the first of which would require a payment of approximately $4,580,000. The project sponsor has entered into a Waiver Agreement with the City, to the satisfaction of the Planning Department and City Attorney, to secure the formation of a Community Facilities (Mello-Roos) District and to take all necessary steps to support the construction of a portion of the public improvements, equal to the value of the Impact Fee owed by the sponsor, and described in the Planning Code 318.6 and in the Rincon Hill Plan. The Planning Commission is being asked to authorize the Director to execute the Mello-Roos Waiver Agreement to satisfy the Project Sponsor's Impact Fee requirement.
