Kirkham Heights is the name of the current apartment complex located on the site that is just over 6 acres. The site is currently home to 89 apartments that were built in 1950. The homes are located near 5th Ave. and Kirkham, nestled up against the west side of Mt. Sutro below the eucalyptus trees and trails of the Mt. Sutro open space reserve.
The owner of the apartments, the Westlake group, has proposed to replace the current buildings on the site with new apartment homes that would increase the number of homes in the development to about 460, of which 86 would be subject to rent control.
The project – as of this writing (November, 2014) is just a proposal on paper, nothing more. The developer will be submitting plans for a large project authorization to the city planning department, and if the project were to go forward there would be any number of studies, forums, reports, and other documents generated and made available for review before any permits would be issued.
