  • A planned substation on seedy Sixth Street will be used by cops from about 8 a.m. to midnight.

Years in the making, a police substation along Sixth Street to help turn around the crime-plagued area is on schedule to open next summer if approved by the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

The Sixth Street substation is part of The City’s plan to revitalize the mid-Market Street area.

The substation is expected to open in June, around the same time the microblogging service Twitter plans to move into its new headquarters on Market and 10th streets.

Mayor Ed Lee today will announce a comprehensive plan to boost economic activity in the area.

The Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee on Wednesday approved the lease of 1,932 square feet of ground-floor office space at the Baldwin House at 72 Sixth St.

The substation, which would be open from about 8 a.m. to midnight, will be used by officers patrolling the area to write reports and conduct interviews. It will keep more cops in the field, instead of them having to return to the nearest police station at 850 Bryant St.
