After a near-15 year vacancy, the Richmond District’s Alexandria Theater will be repurposed into a multi-story recreational and educational facility featuring a two swimming pools and office space.
With a 4-1 vote on Thursday, the San Francisco planning commission gave the greenlight to modified plans for the project by approving a conditional use authorization.
The original project plans, approved in 2013, included an adjacent residential building which has since been constructed, as well as commercial spaces on the ground floor, a restaurant on the second floor and a small theater at the corner of 18th Avenue and Geary Boulevard.
The project ultimately moving forward will feature an adult and a children’s swimming pool on the theater’s ground floor, and a learning center on the second floor that will host after-school educational programs and lend itself for community use in the mornings and evenings. It also includes the addition of a third level within the theater that will provide professional office space.Read More
