South San Francisco, CA June 17, 2021
South City Car Wash was a long time favorite family owned local business that was established in 1958 and demolished in 2019 to make room for a six-story 174 unit development. This multi-family building will be five stories of residential units over a one-story of commercial/leasing areas – including a two-story subterranean garage. Additional amenity are said to include a small spa, and commercial spaces.
Many locals lament the unused depressed shopping center on El Camino Real and Spruce Avenue and question why isn’t this being rebuilt now as well. Others recognize how much worse traffic would be crossing town if both main arteries, Chestnut and Spruce, were undergoing major construction. So, there is that, although the Chestnut corridor continues to be problematic at ECR. (the old Spruce Safeway has not reported new activity at this time)
This development is scheduled to be completed by the years end. These photos show the status of this area as of last week, for those who haven’t been in this area in a while.
