It’s Official Lucky 13 to Become 27 Condos

Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

In 2015 we reported that there were plans to replace legendary San Francisco dive bar Lucky 13 with condos. At the time it was more of an open ended concept; sometime in the future condos would be put there. Unfortunately that date is now here.

Yesterday SocketSite reported that a permit has been pulled to demolish Lucky 13 and build “a new five-story building with 27 condos, a 1,230-square-foot commercial space fronting Market Street and a storage room for 34 bikes.” the permit to build there has bee requested as well.

Here is what the rendering of the new building will look like:

As SocketSite also reports, the parcel was purchased for “$9.75 million or roughly $360,000 per entitled unit”. I have a feeling that “entitled” is the most important word in that sentence…but maybe I’m just a cynical fuck.

As of now, there is no word on when they will be breaking ground. But I can tell you this much, the thought of losing Lucky 13 is a real big bummer. I better go buy one of their hoodies while I still can.
