1140 Folsom / 99 Rausch Development

Details from 2014 re the development across the street from 60 Rausch, behind 73 Sumner, from Six Story Folsom Street Development Rendered, Dubbed 99 Rausch:

99 Rausch Rendering

The Local Development Group has officially filed their application to raze the former Bay Lighting & Design building and adjacent parking lot on the northeast corner of Folsom and Rausch and construct a mixed-use development with 112 residential units, 5,600 square feet of ground floor retail, and 100 parking stalls on the West SoMa site.

While currently known as the 1140 Folsom Street project, the development which is being designed by BAR Architects will be dubbed 99 Rausch.

99 Rausch Rendering: Rausch Street

The design details and full Rausch Street facade by way of a plugged-in source:

The plan is to demolish the existing commercial building on the site and construct a project that will include 45 two-bedroom units, 52 one-bedroom units and 15 studios at a height of 6 stories along Folsom and 4 stories along the Rausch frontage. Additionally, one level of underground parking would be access from Rausch Street. We are excited to activate the Folsom frontage with ground-floor retail and building entrances where the current building has only a blank façade all along Folsom.

The project design builds on the unique character of the Rausch Street neighborhood. The Folsom façade highlights three elements. First, a clearly defined retail base will enhance the pedestrian experience by lowering the façade’s scale and providing richness with stone material and storefront variety. The housing above the retail is appropriately scaled with large windows and brick material, reminiscent of several brick buildings along Folsom Street. Finally, the corner of Folsom and Rausch will be accentuated by a lighter structure with expansive windows to create a sense of openness and maximize views. The developer is committed to activating the street-level experience along Folsom where they propose sidewalk bulb-outs at Folsom/Rausch, public bicycle parking, and enhanced landscaping at street level designed by landscape architect Cliff Lowe.

Along Rausch, the project utilizes a rhythm of smaller scaled units that is contextual to the charming nature of the existing environment. The project steps down to four stories along Rausch and the building features garden stoop entrances, enhanced landscaping and trees to activate the sidewalk experience. Bay windows will also reduce the scale along Rausch and provide southern light and views to the residents.

Lawsuit Settled

A letter from Berding | Weil, attorneys for the 73 Sumner St Homeowners Association, was distributed today:

Re: 73 Sumner Street Homeowners Association v. 73 Sumner LLC, et al

As you know, the Association reached a settlement in the above-referenced proceedings in early February 2014. A dismissal of the lawsuit could not be filed, however, until settlement agreements were finalized and signed, and the Association was in receipt of all settlement funds. 

We are happy to report that those steps are now complete and a dismissal of the lawsuit was filed on April 15, 2014. Our office now considers this matter concluded. We sincerely appreciate your patience throughout this process.

A copy of the letter is attached.

73 Sumner is in one of SFs "most popular neighborhoods"

posted Sep 28, 2012, 10:08 AM by Site Admin

A nice mention of unit 302 in the article, though... "The SoMa"?

The SoMa is all the rage now, thanks to tech boom 2.0, aided also by Twitter setting up camp near a less than savory South of Market area in exchange for a tax break. Suddenly the ‘loin is looking more tender and folks are shelling out what used to be Upper-Fillmore prices for anything near the “Multimedia Gulch.”

SFGate: S.F.'s diverse real estate frenzy expected to last

Looks like things have turned around. A quote:

Not only are prices of existing condominiums recovering to prerecession heights, new complexes are springing up, like 299 Valencia, a 36-unit building in the Mission District that is already 60 percent sold, despite the fact it hasn't completed construction yet, according to SocketSite. MillwheelSF, a 32-unit complex under construction in the Dogpatch neighborhood, is pricing its three-bedroom, two-bath units from $719,000 to $825,000. I'm told ground will be broken "very soon" on a second, 299-unit condominium tower at One Rincon Hill.

"We've seen tremendous improvement since the beginning of the year," said Paul Zeger, CEO of Pacific Marketing Associates. "Interest rates are low, and consumer confidence is up. And you could literally own a condo on Third Street cheaper than renting one in most of the city."

For less tony neighborhoods, like the Bayview, with the Third Street light rail providing easy access to downtown, the complex symbolizes a rebirth of sorts.

"You can start to feel it gaining traction, with middle-class buyers moving into a community that had been hollowed out," said Rick Holliday, president of Oakland's Holliday Development, which built 5800 Third St. It's great to watch it come back."
