284 Foot Tall Condo Building Proposed for 75 Howard Street

J.K. Dineen reported in the San Francisco Business Times that Paramount Group is proposing to demolish the 8-story parking garage at Howard and Steuart Street in order to build a 284-foot tall, 160-unit condominium high-rise tower. Building heights along The Embarcadero have traditionally been 45 feet tall – a characteristic that helps to keep sunshine on the open spaces along the Embarcadero Pedestrian Promenade. While the site sits on Steuart Street, there is a very small sliver of Port-owned property that separates it from The Embarcadero that makes me hope the Planning Department will chop down the height to 120 feet to help minimize shadowing along the waterfront because that waterfront promenade is one of our most precious resources, in my humble opinion.
Stay tuned ….
