Greystar to present new build to DTNA tonight, all invited
The Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association is inviting the Castro community to their general meeting tonight at 7PM where Greystar Developers will be giving the keynote presentation with their plans for the upcoming 87-unit build at 2198 Market Street located next to the Swedish American Hall on the north side of Market Street (where the Christmas tree lot used to be). If approved, the development will be the third of three developments taking place at the intersection of Market / Sanchez / 15th Street.
- A better design that meets the community’s approval and the standards of the Upper Market Development Design Guidelines including a 25% rear-yard set back to keep new builds from towering over their lower, older neighbors (see page 7 of the above linked guide).
- Inclusion of 11 affordable housing units rather than opting to contribute to the City fund, as many other developers throughout SF have done, that will be used at some later date at undisclosed locations to erect affordable housing.
- A nationwide non-discrimination policy. (Of the 35 states where Greystar has properties, only 14 require policies protecting the LGBT community.)
If you feel passionate about the design/implementation of the structure or its lack of affordable housing inclusions, consider heading to the meeting and supporting the DTNA this evening over at Davies Medical Center Gazebo Room from 7-9PM.
