The sites on the map represent vacant or under-developed sites as compared to existing zoning and height regulations. The number of net new units and commercial square feet for underdeveloped or vacant sites in neighborhood commercial areas assume a typical development with commercial square footage on the ground floor and residential units above.
These sites are all privately owned and any actual development proposals will be between the site owners and the developer. The maps provide information for both community residents and potential developers on sites that have existing capacity under existing zoning. The Sunset could add approximately 1,300 housing units and 1.3 million commercial square feet under existing zoning. Currently the Sunset has approximately 25,000 housing units, the potential new units represent a 5% increase. The renderings do not represent proposed developments – they are provided only to give a sense of scale under existing zoning and height regulations. In producing these maps the Department is hoping to generate a dialogue between neighborhood residents and the development community. If one of these sites were to be developed the developer/property owner would be required to follow all existing City regulations.
