SocketSite has been on the case of 1840 Washington, reportedly a nine-story, 26-unit building with a roof deck, underground parking and street-level commercial use. Construction has begun on the address, currently an empty Pac Heights lot across from an Academy of Art building. They've been tracking the site for a year and a half now, but more drawings of the building surfaced today on a structural-system company's website. It looks like the building was designed by Patri Merker Architects, who have worked on a number of large projects in the city, including Macy's and the now defunct CompUSA. Residential projects include 181 South Park and Courtyard at Nob Hill.
