Exclusive: Elite private school proposes 320-foot tower in S.F. development hotspot

San Francisco's French American International School has submitted plans for a mixed-use 31-story tower in a neighborhood primed for more density.

The K-12 private school's preliminary proposal at 98 Franklin St. calls for a 320-foot highrise with 301 residential units atop lower-level school facilities. The site is within the city's Market Street Hub study area, where the city seeks to increase heights for more housing, public space, transit and space for artists. The plan is expected to be approved by the end of 2018. The 98 Franklin St. site currently has a height limit of 85 feet and would require the Hub plan's zoning changes to move forward.

The project's preliminary project assessment (PPA) calls for 280,650 square feet of residential space, 70,000 square feet of academic space in four floors, 5,900 square feet of retail and 15,240 square feet of open space . . . .

Impressive bulk and height for the area.

No Red Flags for Proposed 320-Foot-Tall Hayes Valley Tower
February 8, 2017

San Francisco’s Planning Department has completed its preliminary review of the French American International School’s proposed 320-foot tower to rise on its parking lot site at 98 Franklin Street in Hayes Valley. And beyond the proposed height, for which the school has a plan, the Department didn’t raise any substantial red flags.

While the Franklin Street site, which includes a spur to Market, is currently only zoned for development up to 85-feet in height, it falls within the borders of San Francisco’s Market Street HUB Project, which includes increased building heights of up to 600 feet.

And while the City’s draft plan for the 98 Franklin Street parcel had envisioned a height limit of 160 feet, the school is requesting that it simply be doubled to 320 . . . .

Wow. This thing is getting better treatment than I imagined. Maybe being an "elite private school" carries benefits. Or maybe somebody with power in the Planning Dept. sends a kid there.
