The Board of Supervisors has, for the second time, delayed a vote on the appeal of plans to build a luxury skyscraper on Oak Street and Van Ness Avenue as negotiations continue between the developer, appellant and city officials.
Board of Supervisors President London Breed said on Tuesday she has her “fingers crossed” that an agreement is reached on the One Oak Street project in the next two weeks.
“We are still working with the developers and the community to come up with an agreement,” Breed said. “We are not quite there.”
The 40-story tower would include 304 condos and 136 parking spaces.
The appellant is concerned about the amount of parking spaces and the potential for the intersection to become a traffic nightmare, because a city analysis of the plans left out data on ride-hail vehicles like Uber and Lyft.
“We have had a very good conversation so far with the Planning Department about some of the remedies that can be done,” said appellant Jason Henderson, a San Francisco State University professor who studies urban mobility. “We’re still trying to pencil out exactly what that looks like and how that can be memorialized.”
The Board of Supervisors is scheduled vote on the California Environmental Quality Act appeal Sept. 26.
“I do believe that we are getting very close,” Henderson said.
