After 20 years of sitting empty the Pagoda Theater in North Beach was torn down, with a plan to replaced it with a luxury condominium complex. The new construction will be 5 stories tall with approximately 19 residential housing units — 15 two bedrooms, two one bedroom, and two three bedrooms. The building will be across from the iconic Washington Square park in the heart of the North Beach neighborhood, a rare location to find new construction. The condos will occupy the top four of five floors, over a ground floor restaurant that will be approximately 4,700 square feet. There are plans for 27 parking spots and it is assumed that each unit will have one parking space and that the remaining spaces will be used by the restaurant. All of the homes will have with very high-end finishes. Some of them will have private decks. There will be a shared roof deck for residents. The developer is West Builders, and construction started last year in 2016.
