550 o'farrell looks to transform an underutilized 2 story parking garage in the heart of the Tenderloin District into much needed housing geared towards the workforce market. located only a few blocks from both the civic center and union square, this building is designed for the city dweller who wants to be near both work and play. new development to this midblock site will also work to energize a stretch of o'farrell street that has not seen much improvement in decades. the 13 story concrete building is comprised entirely of studios and 1 bedroom units. building amenities include a resident lounge with an outdoor deck at the podium level as well as a large landscaped roof deck with expansive views of the city. the units are made efficient to keep costs down but include amenities such as built-in entertainment and work surfaces, full galley kitchens as well as in-unit washer and dryers.
