NOTE TIME and LOCATION: 2:00PM – 49 South Van Ness Avenue, Room 273, 2nd level

Notice is hereby given to the general public that an application involving the property and/or issue described below has been filed with the Planning Department for review as set forth in the City Planning Code. The Zoning Administrator will hold a SPECIAL PUBLIC HEARING on this item and/or other matters on Tuesday, December 12, 2023, beginning at 2:00 p.m. at 49 South Van Ness Avenue, Room 273, 2nd Level.

2022-005728VAR (NICHOLAS FOSTER) 1212-1214 UNION STREET, Lot 018 in Assessor's Block 0096, in an NC-1 Zoning District, and a 40-X Height and Bulk District: REAR YARD MODIFICATION: The proposal is to construct a 3rd floor horizontal addition, a stair penthouse, and new roof deck on an existing three-story building containing two dwelling units. Planning Code Section 134 requires the subject property to maintain a rear yard of at least 25 percent of lot depth (or 15 feet) at all levels. The existing, irregular-shaped third floor encroaches into the required rear yard by approximately 8 feet. The proposed horizontal expansion of the third-floor towards the front of the lot infills approximately 36 square feet within the required rear yard. Therefore, the project requires a rear yard modification.

It is strongly recommended that persons submit their comments in writing in advance of the hearing. Written comments may be submitted via email directly to the case planner.
