THE PROCESS

To help us evaluate 1979 Mission Street’s constraints, its existing facilities and infrastructure, and the neighboring infrastructure, we engaged design and engineering experts. We have conducted environmental and technical studies of the concepts and plans included in the project’s proposal.

In February 2014, Maximus-BP 1979 Mission Street LLC submitted an application for Environmental Evaluation to the San Francisco Planning Department to analyze the 1979 Mission Street plan. The application was used to request an environmental review of the project to fulfill the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The location of 1979 Mission Street is within San Francisco’s Eastern Neighborhood Mission Area Plan whose environmental impact report (EIR) was approved in 2008. A Conditional Use Authorization application was filed with the City in March 2014.

A focused EIR, analyzing 1979 Mission’s wind and shadow impacts, was submitted to the City in May 2016.

In addition to working with our neighbors in The Mission, we are working with local and regional agencies to deliver a project which maximizes community benefits to The Mission neighborhood and San Francisco.
