The Hub Project

The Hub Project is the name of the redevelopment proposals at Market St and Van Ness Avenue.

The Planning Department has already renamed this area to create a neighborhood called The Hub District, which they say the area was called in the 1880’s through the 1950’s, when cable car lines converged here.

Developers for the proposed two 41-story towers to rise up to 420 feet above the Honda dealership at 10 South Van Ness Avenue, have refined their plans to include 984 units of housing (a roughly 25 percent increase from the originally proposed 767 units) and a parking garage with 518 spaces (up from 275 parking spaces originally proposed.) They have a backup plan drafted for a single tower which still accommodates all this.

These plans take advantage of the new height allowances given by the city to developers of The Hub. Check out this interactive website to see renderings of how these proposals will look.
