Nearly 300 new homes are on the horizon for Potrero Hill.
A mixed-use development at 1601 Mariposa St. in the works for more than two years was approved unanimously by the Planning Commission on Thursday, after an initial effort to continue to project to January was rejected by commissioners.
After more than two hours of public comment, commissioners unanimously certified the final environmental impact report for the project that will contain 5,593 square feet of retail space and 299 residential units, of which 20 percent will be below-market-rate rentals, and approved the large project authorization needed for the project to move forward.
There are also 369 bicycle parking spaces and 243 parking spaces slated for the site, which currently contains an auto parts warehouse, a single-story office building and a two-story bus repair depot. The homes be split between two four-story, 40-foot-tall buildings.
