The design draws from its context within the historic Light Industrial District and features modern detailing and a thoughtful use of materials and color. The two buildings, one facing 7th Street and the other Langton Street, offer different interpretations of this design approach.
The proposed 7th Street building is organized with a traditional base, middle and top with proportions that relate to the immediately adjacent industrial neighbors. The building is clad with black terra cotta tile that is a modern interpretation of the district’s brick buildings. The building has 5 residential levels over a ground floor commercial and residential lobby. The commercial space features 25 feet of frontage and tall 13-foot ceilings suitable to a variety of neighborhood serving businesses.
The proposed Langton Street building is a more contemporary style because it is surrounding by an eclectic mix of building ages, types, and styles. The building is clad in a smooth gray cement plaster that is a modern interpretation of the district’s concrete industrial buildings. It is highlighted by a glass bay projection that angles toward Folsom Street. The building has 5 floors and three residential units.
