Construction of the 980,000 GSF, mixed-use residential and public stair project in Potrero Hill and Dogpatch neighborhoods has been an unusual spectacle for most San Franciscans. Align Real Estate, Perry Architects, Min|Day, Fletcher Studio, Build Group, and Nishkian Menninger are teaming up on this challenging project to put a 600-foot long building onto the east side of Potrero Hill.
A great deal of hubbub has surrounded the luxury real estate market in Downtown San Francisco in recent months. Newly completed is La Maison, a 28-unit luxury condominium building located at 241 10th Street between Howard and Folsom. Epitomizing comfort and sophistication, this 23,570 square-foot mixed-use residential structure offers a variety of one- and two-bedroom contemporary floorplans ranging from 518 square feet to 992 square feet, each individually custom designed to offer a unique living experience. Structural design was performed by Nishkian Monks. The structure is four stories of wood framing over one story of concrete construction (Type VA over Type IA). The wood framing consists of I-joist and glulam floor/roof framing with wood shear walls. The above grade post-tensioned concrete podium separates the residential units from the office/retail and parking spaces below. The structural foundation is an at-grade mat foundation.
1201 Tennessee is a new mixed-use residential development located in the heart of San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood. Historically industrial, the Dogpatch district has experienced extensive residential and commercial growth since the 1990’s. 1201 Tennessee sits on land that was once a 1,500-foot long building used for production of rope by the Tubbs San Francisco Cordage Company. The industrial nature of the neighborhood is represented by a silo aesthetic along Third Street while San Francisco’s residential, Victorian architecture is represented along 23rd Street.
Developed by AGI Resmark the apartment complex offers 259 mixed-income units with ample parking and retail space on the ground floor. The project also includes 34 affordable units for families earning 55% or less of the area’s median income. The complex amenities include bicycle parking, shared work spaces, a roof deck, and a protected courtyard with green space. 1201 Tennessee is adjacent to both the MUNI rail system and Caltrain, making it accessible for people working in San Francisco or Silicon Valley. The structure of this project is five stories of wood construction over one level of concrete with a mezzanine level, all supported on a pile foundation system. Concrete and wood shear walls provide the lateral force resisting system.
Fougeron Architecture has designed the apartment complex collaborating with general contractor Devcon Construction, and structural engineers Nishkian Menninger in San Francisco and Nishkian Monks in Bozeman. Our San Francisco office designed the concrete substructure while our Bozeman office designed the wood superstructure.
