"The overall design is one of inclusivity, resilience, and deep care about tenants, neighbors, neighborhood, and larger environment.”
--AIA San Francisco Design Awards Jury, 2021
The 8-story mid-rise replaces a parking lot with a car-free, high-density building two blocks from Market Street transit opportunities. The corner features lofty ground-level retail spaces set to activate the street edge with an expanded space for a long-time local grocer and a Yemeni restaurant. A flexible central courtyard and roof-top farm bring critical open green space for residents. The farm will provide food and volunteer gardening opportunities to residents, and maximize shared city views.
The contextual building both fits in and stands out in the historic neighborhood, with a variegated brick facade referencing local masonry and dramatic notches that align with surrounding historic cornices. The sustainable development is LEED for Homes Mid-Rise pending, and is on track to be one of the first EnergyStar Multifamily Mid-Rises in California.
