San Francisco, CA – Woods Bagot has unveiled its design for 2177 Third Street, a new mixed-use condominium development by M. Gaehwiler Construction Inc. in San Francisco’s Central Waterfront neighborhood. Conveniently located on the Third Street transit corridor between Mission Bay and the Pier 70 redevelopment zone, the 109-unit development will enjoy waterfront views, ample neighborhood amenities and businesses, and easy connections to regional hubs. Woods Bagot is the design architect for 2177 Third Street working in collaboration with Gary Gee Architects and Surface Design, landscape architects.

510102_N2_medium“2177 Third Street will be both a landmark and a link for the neighborhood,” said John Britton, principal of Woods Bagot. “We wanted to complement the distinctive historic industrial buildings that define the area while also providing transparency and physical connections that contribute to the neighborhood’s growth as a dynamic, walkable neighborhood.”

The design of the seven-story building highlights connectivity and community throughout. Folding glass doors enclosing the retail space will open fully to the street. Within the one- and two-bedroom units set back columns and sliding internal walls allow the residences to enjoy unobstructed neighborhood views and plentiful natural light. A series of common courtyard gardens linked by wooden boardwalks and sloped decks as well as a rooftop terrace provide residents with outdoor environments for connecting and gathering while also contributing to the development’s on-site water management.

A modularized facade system incorporating framed balconies, sliding glass doors, and operable windows is central to the building’s livability and energy performance. Composed of bronze-anodized aluminum and clear and metallic-fritted high-performance glass, the facade reflect the rich materials of the neighborhood’s historic buildings, and introduce a play of light and shadow throughout the day. Horizontal and vertical sunshades, which vary in depth according to their sun orientation, reduce energy use by tempering heat gain while allowing daylight in.

M. Gaehwiler Construction Inc. is currently seeking approvals for 2177 Third Street.
