In the age of the micro-unit, where homes are coming onto the market with paltry floor space hovering around 200 sq. feet, it was encouraging to see three bedroom condos being planned for 690 Page Street. Although, only 12 homes will fit in the 7,749 sq. foot property bound by a 40 foot zoned ceiling, each unit will be generously sized between 1,325 to 1,450 sq. feet and appeal to an ever dwindling demographic group: families.

Gary Gee Architects took no chances on the design, as renderings show a bland form that makes one truly appreciate the ornate architecture of Lower Haight’s celebrated Victorian and Edwardian homes. Despite a lackluster design, the project will include a generous amount of parking spaces (12) and contribute one home to a less affluent family under the city’s mandatory BMR program. The property, owned by Page Steiner Associates LLC, is expected to take a year to complete and be available sometime late next summer.
