Do you have any links to info on the development that is happening there? I searched it but could only find this TBJ article about it's sale in March for $12 million
, but it's behind a paywall.
Edit: I found a Reddit post
with some scuttlebutt that it might be mixed-use, but it seems like it's all speculation on the fact that it's zoned with the potential for mixed use up to 150 feet in height. Nothing conclusive, and the owners declined to comment at the time of sale/purchase.
I always forget just how close that is to downtown, despite driving by it 5 days a week for over a year at one point. 147 just really separates it physically and mentally from "downtown", but it's literally only a football field away from Bull House! Hopefully the two sides of 147 become better-connected in the future. I don't know if this means a pedestrian bridge, or a tunnel or what, but we need something.
