If all the votes fall in place, Balboa Park will be the next area to turn into a "transit village" complete with dense housing, retail, and the must-have lingering latte sipper (college students included!).
The Balboa Park Station Area plan, which has been brewing for almost a decade now, will go to the Board of Supes Land Use Committee today with a recommendation that it go to the full Board for approval.
The heart of the plan: turning current Muni bus layover Phelan Loop (site of a charming message to the Google satellites) into a public plaza, with a new mixed-use building next door. All told, we're talking as much as 1,780 new housing units and a ton more of commercial development.
