New Construction Floor Plans:
Culminating over six years of intensely focused design planning, architectural review and development, neighborhood outreach and collaborative planning, we are pleased to present Above Dolores, a one-of-a-kind, side-by-side triple-lot, panoramic view, single-family home development opportunity in the heart of Dolores Heights. With the rare opportunity to have two new single-family home structures plus two existing single-family homes and a house-like two-unit building across its span, Above Dolores can be a multi-generational family site with expansive outdoor spaces or created for the development and resale of beautifully disparate residences.
With San Francisco Planning Commission approval and Neighborhood review completed, Above Dolores presents a ready-to-go opportunity for an owner-user seeking a remarkably spacious and special building opportunity rarely found in the city. Spearheaded by Studio 12 Architecture over the past decade and ardently shepherded through the laborious San Francisco Planning and Development process by development specialists Dydx Realty, Above Dolores is presented to its new owners with a pathway for construction. The opportunity comes complete with an initial complimentary package of professional design and development services (if desired) to fine tune architectural and design details to the buyer’s preference and to commence construction with an entree to key assistive players…plus a direct connection and insight into the prior 72-month development process.
Approved plans consist of two new, three-story single-family view homes, one in excess of 3,600 square feet above garage, and another in excess of 4,300 square feet above garage on lots 3927 and 3929. Lot 3931 presents a terraced, open green space area above garage and is backed by a substantial house-like residence, identified as a two-unit building to the rear. Lots 3927 and 3929 currently feature an existing single-family structure to the rear, which offers up an opportunity to renovate and personalize the existing structures….all of which have been approved to remain on the contiguous properties with recently approved setbacks.
The properties have undergone geotechnical and soils analyses to assess the site’s capacity to sufficiently support the proposed new structures along with multiple professional assessments by licensed arborists and naturalists to appropriately determine the management of existing tree and birdlife on the site, all in line with the approved development and construction plans.
Designed to take in the panoramic views over Dolores Heights, across the northern stretches of San Francisco, and culminating in sweeping vistas of the downtown skyline, Above Dolores presents its new owners an opportunity to create a once-in-a-lifetime ensemble of residences in the heart of the city’s most dynamic residential and retail environment at the crossroads of Mission Dolores, Castro, and Liberty Hill / Dolores Park.
