If no homes are listed then no homes are currently available for sale at 695 5th St. through the MLS. Nothing in the building? Below are neighborhood listings:
376 Castro is at the intersection of Market and Castro, what was once a working-class Irish neighborhood. The intersection borders three historically gay neighborhoods: The Castro, Corona Heights, and Duboce Triangle. All three areas changed a lot beginning with the urban flight of the 1960s and 1970s. Irish-Catholic families moved out, either heading west to the Sunset or out of the city altogether! The LGBT community, meanwhile, slowly migrated from The Polk/Tenderloin area and claimed the areas as their own, with The Castro entering the American story as a visible LGBT neighborhood in the late 1970s, only to be over-shadowed by the AIDS epidemic of the early 1980s.
While the area was once devoid of children and families afraid to live near homosexuals, today you’ll find a diverse, if incredibly expensive, neighborhood.
Currently home to an Arco gas station, this corner lot at the heart of the Castro district will — possibly — one day become a mixed-use building with a community room and retail space on the ground floor with twenty-four condominium homes above, making the development about six stories high (65 feet, to be precise). The building makes extensive use of glass, particularly for the homes on the Market/Castro corner. They will make an amazing perch above the heart of the Castro neighborhood.
After a protracted legal battle between the majority owners of the Arco gas station and the prior developer, the project is available for sale again as of August 2017. The original permits have expired, and whoever buys the project will have to start from scratch (or close to it). Some neighbors objected to any development on the site, so it’s likely that they will gear up for another fight if and when the site sells.
Original renderings showed the building finished in stucco, but other websites and drawings indicate that the building exterior will be tiled in a pattern to give it a more modern look.
As-planned drawings are available. Please note that minor changes often occur during the construction period, so what is planned may not be exactly what is delivered.
Currently unknown, updates will be posted here as that information becomes available.
At this time, no pricing has been announced for the homes at 376 Castro. Sign up to learn more and we will be happy to share that information as soon as we have it!
Original plans called for 24 units — five one-bedroom homes and 19 two-bedroom homes — but that could change when the site sells to a new developer. Also included in the original plans: on-site BMR/Inclusionary Housing homes.
