Tall buildings could rise on Mission Street

New buildings on Mission Street could be more than 50 percent taller than the buildings they replace, under a zoning proposal due to be discussed at a public meeting Tuesday evening.

Height limits along the corridor, between 16th and Cesar Chavez streets, could be increased from 55 feet or 65 feet up to 85 feet under one of several scenarios being considered by the Planning Department.

Planners will update meeting participants on various scenarios being considered and record their feedback.

The meeting is scheduled to run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Mission Cultural Center Gallery, which is on Mission Street at 24th Street.
