New renderings reveal a sleek modern addition to transform the historic “Station A” into a modern office building. The twelve-story adaptive re-use will feature design by Adamson Associates with consultation from the high-profile Herzog & de Meuron. With affordances for workers and the general public, this mid-rise development will be a part of the massive Potrero Power Station development in Dogpatch, led by Associate Capital’s Barrel Company LLC.
Permits have been filed for the 600,000 square foot office portion of Potrero Power Plant, a 29-acre redevelopment in Dogpatch, San Francisco. Redeveloping abandoned industrial plots has become quite the trend internationally. London has the Battersea Power Station. New York City has the Domino Sugar Factory, and San Francisco has several along the eastern waterfront, including this one, India Basin, and, arguably, Mission Rock. The developers of Potrero Power Plant have recently applied for its office allocation permits, indicating preparation for phase one of six. Associate Capital’s California Barrel Company LLC is in charge of the 5.3 million square foot project.
