In the News: Balboa Reservoir development wins S.F. Planning Commission approval
From the San Francisco Business Times

More than five years of community planning to redevelop a 17.6-acre swath of land west of the City College of San Francisco’s Ocean campus came to a head on Thursday when a proposal for a 1,100 unit residential project on a portion of the Balboa Reservoir received its first significant approval.
With an unanimous vote, the San Francisco Planning Commission certified a final environmental impact report for the project and green-lit a development agreement with master developers Reservoir Community Partners, LLC. The plan is to break ground in late 2021 or early 2022.
“I’m really persuaded by the unique opportunity of the site,” said Commissioner Sue Diamond. “It is rare to have this sized piece of land on the west side of the city that allows for the amount of master planning that has gone into creating an entire neighborhood.”
