400-Square-Foot Two-Bedrooms Proposed, Planning Has Concerns

Panoramic Interests plans to raze the single-story industrial building at 333 12th Street and build up to seven stories and 274 apartments on the parcel and adjacent parking lot between Folsom and Harrison.

As currently zoned, the Western SoMa site could support around 200 units of housing in buildings up to five stories in height, but Panoramic intends to invoke California’s Density Bonus law, which could allow for the additional height and density for the “affordable-by-design/workforce” project if approved.

Regardless, the proposed units would average 398 square feet apiece, or roughly 350 square feet excluding the bathrooms.  And that includes the two-bedrooms as well… (more)

Even Some people at the Planning department think this is a stretch. Is  350 2 bedroom apartment planned for humans? Why not just live in a trailer or on a boat? You would have a bout at much room at in an apartment with rooms this small. If this is Governor Brown’s new affordable housing plan, it will not be very popular. This sounds like a science experiment. Let’s see how small of a space we can cram people into and not drive them crazy.
