Tonight at the Ida B. Wells School, neighbors are invited to discuss potential development at 400 Divisadero St., currently a gas station and car wash.

According to a flyer distributed by project developer Genesis Real Estate Group, “the open house is intended to facilitate discussion of the preliminary project concept between the project team, adjacent neighbors and community organizations.”

Representatives from Genesis will be in attendance, along with the project architect “and other team members.” According to the Planning Department, pre-application meetings are a "mandatory form of community outreach" designed to "initiate neighbor communication and identify issues and concerns early on."

No formal approvals have been issued for this project, which means construction permits are a long way from being issued. When demolition and construction work might begin—or be completed—is an open-ended question.

In 2015, a firm proposed razing the site to install a 6-story, 81-foot-high mixed commercial and residential development that was met with mixed feelings.
