Amazon’s planned logistics center in Mission Bay will cost at least $125 million to build, according to recently filed building permits.
The three-story warehouse will rise at 900 7th Street, across from open space at the Mission Creek channel, San Francisco YIMBY reported. Amazon paid $202 million for the property after its owner, Recology, scrapped a proposed 200-foot-high project with 500 apartments and as much as 625,000 square feet of commercial space with area for offices or life science uses.
The pandemic “sapped the viability of that project,” Recology said in December. The structures for the 5.8 acre site would have been designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
The Amazon proposal calls for a 58-foot-tall warehouse that will yield 650,000 square feet through three floors, including space for ground-floor retail. A 223,300-square-foot rooftop is also included in the plans and will serve as accessory parking. The development will also include parking for 395 vehicles and 56 bikes as well as 10 freight loading spaces.
The ground-floor retail was added after city staff recommended adding a “small retailer or coffee shop.” Plans also show a triangular open space for landscaping that Amazon hopes will contribute to the community.
The application was filed in November and the permits were suspended last week due to a rejected online credit card payment. According to the planning department, the permit is suspended only momentarily for technical issues.
