299 Valencia Condo Developer Looking Constructing a Second Building Down the Street

The developers behind the 299 Valencia condo project, who famously boast about their building's access to “artisan haircuts” and “racks of raw denim”, are thrilled with how sales went on that particular property—so thrilled that they now want to erect a second five-story building at the abandoned gas station on the corner of 23rd and Valencia.  SocketSite has the scoop:

The developer of 299 Valencia Street is quietly testing the waters over Planning to raze the shuttered gas station on 23rd Street between Valencia and San Jose Avenue and construct a five-story building with 42 dwelling units over ground floor retail and 31 off-street parking spaces on the 1198 Valencia Street site that's undergoing environmental remediation.

Like Mitt Romney's humble abode, the condo will feature a fancy car elevator so they can squeeze as many Lexuses as possible into the building.

No word if and when construction will begin, as they still need authorization from the Planning Commission to proceed.

Begin saving for your downpayment.

noooooooooooooo! not our beautiful boarded up gas station!!!!!!!! THEY’RE RUINING THE CHARACTER OF OUR HOOD.

Don’t drag me into this mess.

Less than 1 parking space per unit of housing, please.

You’ll get your wish. They’re proposing .75 spaces per unit (average, obviously, not tiny parking spaces)

anything is better than that damned gas station

42 units. 41,490 sq ft of residential living space. That’s like 8 of those SoMa apartments! Can’t wait to stand in line behind these people everywhere.

And the first piece of equipment to break down regularly will be….

It’s too bad that we have to lose yet another historic structure for this.

No mention of affordable housing, where are all of the artisan hairdressers going to live?

They should just wall off Valencia from 17th to 24th and make it a giant mall/condo complex.
