Noe Valley Condo Development Hits the Skids

Noe Valley Condo Development Hits the Skids

230 Duncan between Dolores and Church wasn’t always the plastic bag disaster it is today. It was a 1,000-square foot single-family home from 1900-2007 that was used as a rental property in its later years.

The Planning Department granted a demolition permit back in 2006. Contractors then obtained permits in November 2007 to erect four stories and create two dwelling units for a recorded cost of $850,000.

Things didn’t go smoothly after that. The next-door neighbors filed a complaint at the end of 2007 when the demolition damaged part of their building. And the 230 Duncan project has been at a standstill since its last story went up. Neighbors are disgusted and the site’s a blight.

No word on what the outcome will be. My guess is that a replacement developer may get a pretty good deal on an unfinished structure.

    I’ve used that crew before and they were great. I don’t know what the story is here but I did check who is on title and its not any of the parties you listed– generally its the owner that stops construction- wouldn’t you think?

    Thanks for your comment. Yes, the owner typically would stop the construction. I just found the construction company’s info on the permit. I don’t know the owners; they’re obviously having trouble. Might be time to buy it out from under them and finish the job. 🙂
