The proposed redevelopment of the two-story Watermark Press building parcel at 950 Tennessee Street in Dogpatch is pressing forward with Handel Architects now at the design helm.

And as proposed, the modern building to rise up to four stories across the site will feature two distinct styles, “which harken to the district’s dominant residential and industrial characteristics,” to break up the exterior mass of the 99,000 square foot development, with 108 condos (a mix of 44 two-bedrooms, 31 one-bedrooms and 33 studios) inside.

The proposed development will front both Tennessee and Minnesota, with an underground garage for 94 cars and a 27‐ft wide mid‐block public passage connecting the two streets.

    If it ends up looking like the renderings, love the look.

    Near the Caltrain Station, near the I-280 ramps, near the 3rd Street Muni line, near the waterfront, and near the park. Seems like a site with tremendous potential.

    Boldly designed project; perfect height and scale. This neighborhood is really hot and it’s going to be even more desirable in the very near future.

    This is a really great look. Especially the rust colored building.

    Great to see the creation of a mid-block passage – and, of course, all the shrubs.

    Modern architecture, when done well, can produce great buildings.
