Grubstake, a late-night diner in San Francisco that's beloved by the LGBTQ community, received the OK to add apartments on top of the structure.
The San Francisco Planning Commission approved the change 4-2 at its July 22 meeting. As the Bay Area Reporter previously reported, the diner had the support of almost 70 LGBTQ and allied community members in the form of a petition supporting the building of 21 apartments above the Polk Gulch late-night eatery.
The project would see the building rise to eight stories, including the restaurant on the ground floor. Residents of the neighboring Austin condominium building at 1545 Pine Street had expressed opposition to block the project.
