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 1-acre park and is further open to the community by a public mid-block pedestrian mews lined with active uses. Twenty percent of the 453 units will be affordable rental apartments.

7th Street Elevation

7th Street has a rail line and an ellevated freeway on the eastern side. The units on this side face the quiet inner courtyard instead of the noisy train and poluting cars.

Flex Units

To help "activate the edges" we designed flex units, ground level loft units with doors that open directly to the sidewalk.

Diagram: Bike Parking

 

There are 470 bicycle parking space provided for, a goal of 1:1 bike parking that will be achieved with a bike station on Hubbell Street and a bike room convenient to the elevator on each floor of the main building.

Bike parking: 470 spaces. Image: David Baker Architects

Diagram: Retail

 

The projects includes more than 10,000 square feet of pedestrian oriented retail space.

Retail diagram: The retail spaces clustered on 16th Street will include two restaurants. One, at Connecticut and 16th, will open onto a common garden. The other, in the site's "Flatiron" building, will open to the park. Image: David Baker Architects

Color Palette

The color palette of the building was developed by sampling the skyline view of San Francisco from higher up Potrero Hill. Conceptually this is camouflage.
