2017-012887VAR: 265 Oak Street – west side of Polk Street between Washington Street and Clay Street, Lot 002 of Assessor’s Block 0619 (District 3) - Request for Variance from Planning Code Sections 134, 135, and 140 to demolish a one-story garage structure and construct a 4-story two-family home at the rear of a through-lot within the Hayes-NCT (Hayes-Neighborhood Commercial Transit) Zoning District and 40-X Height and Bulk District. The project also includes tenant improvements to the existing 5-unit apartment building and reconfiguration of the existing ground floor unit. The proposed building will be entirely within the rear yard, will not provide sufficient useable open space, and will eliminate Code-complying exposure from at least one dwelling unit. Therefore, a variance from the rear yard, residential open space, and dwelling unit exposure requirements is required.
