The awkward lot at the intersection of 25th Street and the Indiana Street on-ramp to Interstate 280 currently serves as a scrap and storage yard. But as proposed, a five-story building for builders and makers could rise upon the Central Waterfront site.
As designed by Leavitt Architecture, the 1228 25th Street project would provide 11,500 square feet of flexible workspace for small enterprises, including a 1,500-square-foot rooftop space and a 450-square-foot lobby, along with 2,500 square feet of ground floor retail that could be outfitted as a café.
In order to qualify as Small Enterprise Workspace, as is proposed, the individual spaces within the building will need to be limited to no more than 1,500 square feet apiece as opposed to up to 2,000 square feet for a full-floor tenant as is currently drawn. And while the proposal doesn’t include any parking for cars, ten Class 1 bicycle spaces would be constructed adjacent to the lobby.
Plans for four live/work lofts to rise upon the site were proposed and permitted fifteen years ago, but those plans were subsequently abandoned.
