Many denizens of the Castro and Lower Haight have bemoaned the now blighted, three-years-vacant former Home restaurant property, which lost the chance to become a Chipotle last year and has languished ever since. Now we’re seeing some movement as a preliminary project assessment request has been submitted to Planning for 2100 Market Street for a project that would involve demolishing the existing 2-story structure to build a 7-story condo development with 4,700 square feet of ground floor retail.

As Hoodline reports, this is all still highly preliminary and does not represent an actual plan for construction — such assessments are a service provided by Planning to give developers an idea of what obstacles they might face. A similar project assessment was filed by the owners of the Elbo Room property earlier this year, leading to speculation that that beloved Mission bar might not be long for this world.
