Re: Mission Bay plot at South Street and Terry A. Francois Street
This plot has been purchased by Salesforce and will be built within the next 12 months, and is part of the Mission Bay South Redevelopment Plan.
All Mission Bay land has been sold within the past year for high prices. Owner’s names are available on the map “Mission Bay Development Overview Map” in the MBRP.
Sometimes land for affordable housing becomes available (RSP - request for proposal) and nonprofits can bid on it. Probably won’t be any for the next 3 years.

Re: 1901-1915 Quesada Avenue. 4 vacant lots currently for sale.
Result: SF Parks Department has their eye on these lots for a park, and will make it extremely costly in an effort to prevent any development.
Current owner Wu Zhu Zen sumbitted "atrocious" plans for a house for one of these lots. Planning department advised Zen that an Environmental Review needed to be paid for, never received a response.
Planner for these lots is Brett Bollinger.

Re: various questions

SF assessor's office may be able to provide a map of suitable vacant parcels. Contact Mike Wynn at 575-9096, gro.vogfs|ennyw.ekim#gro.vogfs|ennyw.ekim
For how-to guides/checklist of requirements for presenting a project, go to the SFPlanning website and click "permit how to guides".
Also consider "deed restrictions" on potential parcels, can find this out from Assessor's office.

PDR=Production, distribution, and repair. Not for residential use. Would need to re-zone through a legislative amendment and get approval of board of supervisors.
