The development at 50 Lansing Street was a key element of a city effort to redevelop and redefine San Francisco’s historic Rincon Hill neighborhood, near the base of the San Francisco Bay Bridge in the rapidly-developing South of Market area. Sited on a unique, center-of-the-block site in this previously industrial area of the city, this development is part of a special use district and provides the closest residential enclave to the financial district. The structure was shaped from the outside in, formed by the tight, odd-shaped site, which is in turn defined by a small, mid-block loop road and ringed by buildings in a variety of scales.  Designed in a modern architectural style, the building uses varying set-backs from the property line and mid-street points to create depth and add richness to the facade, with inset windows, pilasters, trellises and terraces at various levels affording spectacular city views.

 

This project exemplifies the best aspects of urban infill development.
