147 South Park and its historic district context

January 7, 2015 / 147 South Park

The proposal is to build a contemporary four-story building with a restaurant on the ground floor and two residential units above where a vacant two-story, single-family building “with no discernable architectural style” at 147 South Park currently stands.

And while the request to raze the current structure is subject to a mandatory environmental review per the Eastern Neighborhoods Interim Permit Review Procedures for Historic Resources, we can’t help but be reminded how much more historic San Franciso’s South Park District once stood.
