[maxgallery name=”2655-bush-street-construction-update-2015″]Enduring the last economic recession, a lawsuit, and ownership changes, the planned development at 2655 Bush Street had a delayed and struggled start. But since excavation permits were issued early last year, contractor Midstate Residential Construction has made a significant amount of progress on the project’s construction. A recent visit to the Lower Pacific Heights site showed the reinforced concrete foundations and subterranean parking garage nearing completion with crews currently stitching together rebar for the first floor’s concrete walls. Per city permit records, we expect wood framed upper floors will sit above the reinforced concrete foundation and first floor.
At the corner of Bush and Divisadero Street the structure will rise to a zone limiting 65 feet (excluding roof parapet and mechanical equipment) and drop to 40 feet as it extends west on Bush Street. The KTGY designed building includes a rooftop deck, interior courtyard, and facade design ethos that, despite breaking no new architecture ground, should easily blend with nearby structures. Overall, a total of 81 units, 86 parking spaces, and 3,800 sq. feet of retail space will be contained within the new condominium complex. Judging from current progress we expect the KB Home owned project to complete within the next 12 to 18 months.
