Two buildings with residential units atop flex and retail spaces bring an amenity-rich new neighborhood to the Potrero area. Located on a triangular site at the base of Potrero Hill, the development includes a new 40,000 sf park and is further open to the community by a public mid-block pedestrian mews lined with active uses. Twenty percent of the nearly 500 units will be affordable rental apartments.
The former Daggett Street is proposed to be a 1-acre public park designed by CMG Landscape Architects. The park will be owned by the City but permanently maintained by the development. Amenities include a dog walk, as well as an event lawn and soft play surface.
There is a smaller public open space planned for the corner of 16th and Hubbell Streets. It is slated to have a community allotment garden and outdoor seating for the corner cafe.
The project brings 15,000 square feet of commercial retail space and approximately 7,000 square feet of PDR/SEW space to provide restaurants and useful services for the larger neighborhood. PDR (production, distribution, and repair) zoning allows for small businesses that fill daily uses. SEW (small enterprise workplaces) zoning allows businesses ranging from 500 to 2,500 sf.
At the end of Connecticut Street, Archstone Potrero features a 7,000-sf community garden with raised planting beds. Including this pocket park, the project contains a total of approximately 50,000 square feet of open space dispersed around the project site at grade, within podium courtyards, and in a rooftop garden deck.
