Fisher demo’d the existing building at the corner of Sutter and Presidio to make way for a five-story mixed-use structure which will house a community center, 175-seat gymnasium, a 21-car parking garage, and 50 affordable dwelling units for at-risk youth. This site on the edge of the Western Addition neighborhood presents formidable challenges because of its proximity to the Muni Bus Yard and the nest of overhead bus lines that converge at this congested intersection.
