The San Francisco Planning Department has approved CEQA streamlining for a new manufacturing and laboratory building at 2800 3rd Street in Dogpatch, San Francisco. The project will replace a low-density block with light industrial and laboratory space. New York-based Madison Capital is responsible for the project as the property owner.
Perkins&Will is the project architect. The proposed design balances curtain wall glass with painted steel panels with an overall palette of copper and dark grey. Plant-lined terraces and sidewalk trees will add some life to the articulated exterior. The base will be covered with board-formed concrete.
The 85-foot tall structure is expected to yield 269,200 square feet with 231,000 square feet of manufacturing & laboratory space. Of the rentable area, 41,930 square feet will be prepared for light industrial activity and 188,370 square feet for laboratory use.
The below-grade 32,850 square foot garage will include parking for 100 cars. Bicycle parking will be featured for 132 bikes in a 1,500-square-foot room. For cycling commuters, showers and lockers will be included as well.
In Situ Landscape Architecture is the project’s landscape architect. Luk & Associates is consulting on civil engineering, DCI Structural Engineers is consulting on their namesake field, and Interface Engineering is consulting for MEP.
The 0.92-acre property, which contains three one-story buildings and one two-story structure, was sold in 2019 for $23.4 million. Construction is expected to last 20 months from groundbreaking to completion, with permits estimating construction to cost around $90 million.
