Supes clear way for Market Street development

The Board of Supervisors unanimously rejected on Tuesday an appeal of a 115 condominium project slated for 1960 Market St., a corner lot on Market and Buchanan streets that was once home to a gas service station.

The appeal was filed by the San Francisco Building and Construction Trades Council and said the project’s environmental review, as required under state law, was flawed. Those who fought the appeal said the appeal was just a tactic to force the developer to use only labor union workers for construction. The supervisors seemingly agreed and rejected it in a decisive 11-0 vote.

“I don’t feel that the appellants’ case has merit,” Supervisor Bevan Dufty said. “I do believe that the environmental work is more than adequate.”

The project includes ground floor commercial space and a partially subterranean garage with 69 sparking spaces.
