We received a tip from a reader that the public parking lot on the southwest corner of Gough & Grove is no longer accepting monthly customers. No, not that parking lot. The other parking lot.
After speaking with someone who works at Tower Valet Parking Inc., we learned that the space will soon(ish) be cleared to make way for new apartments.
Apartments? We had no idea. But as it turns out, this plan has been in the works for a while. In October 2009, CurbedSF first reported that "two buildings totaling 70 dwelling units" were going to be built across from Citizen Cake (now, Boxing Room). Since it's been 2.5 years, we wanted to see if any progress had been made.
After years of planning, the transition from parking lot to apartment building is beginning to take place. Once we hear more details about the proposed schedule, we'll let you know. In the meantime, how do you feel about this project? Do we need more housing or is public parking a larger concern?
