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.

. . . the Hub will be upzoned to include up to 9,000 new housing units and over 50,000 square feet of public space like parks and plazas.

But the city is juggling a complex panorama of projects with the need to push the plan through quickly as construction costs rise for developers.

“The whole point of doing this rezoning is to increase housing capacity and address housing issues,” said Josh Switzky, the city’s land use program manager.

. . . (the project) at 98 Franklin St. will be approved in the rezoning plan itself. Related California and the French American International School are planning a 36-story tower with a high school on the bottom and apartments above at 98 Franklin — the first mixed-use project of its kind in San Francisco (see story below) . . . .

Delays to the rezoning process have caused other developers to pursue their projects outside the specific plan . . . .

Developer and elite private school team up on San Francisco's first high school and housing tower
By Blanca Torres – Reporter, San Francisco Business Times
Aug 30, 2018, 2:42pm PDT Updated Sep 13, 2018, 12:27pm

A new type of mixed-use highrise is coming to San Francisco. Developer Related California and the French American International School are working on a plan to build a 36-story tower with a high school on the bottom and apartments on the top.

While developers have built other types of mixed-use projects — housing and retail or housing and office space are relatively common combinations — no one has built a highrise consisting of a school and housing in San Francisco . . . .

Architecture firm SOM is designing the tower at 98 Franklin St. Plans call for a 365-foot tower with five stories for the high school and 31 stories for 345 apartments. The school submitted preliminary plans for the tower back in 2016 before it made the partnership with Related official . . . .

The high school part of the tower will house up to 400 students and will consist of mostly classroom space. French American, a private school, operates an urban campus with close to 1,100 students from pre-school to high school in other nearby buildings on Oak Street . . . .

. . . after the building is completed, the school will own the land under the tower and the school portion of the building while Related will own the apartment portion.

The developer and the school worked out a deal where Related will pay French American to buy a portion of the development. That money will then help the school fund the new high school . . . .

The Hub plan is expected to be adopted by the end of 2019, but the plan has already hit at least one delay. It was originally scheduled for adoption in November 2018. Witte anticipates construction could start on 98 Franklin in 2020 with an opening date in 2023.
