All over Dogpatch, warehouses and parking lots are being snapped up by developers and demolished in favor of new buildings. Now a furniture warehouse at 20th and Tennessee could soon meet the same fate. Its proposed replacement, simply known as 901 Tennessee, would include 44 new residences spread over four stories. The building's design was spearheaded by development and architecture firm Workshop1 and harks back to Dogpatch's industrial roots, with features like "shiplap wood siding, rusted steel panels and ground level commercial-style entry stoops."
Inside, 901 Tennessee features a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedrooms, plus 33 underground parking spaces and 88 bike parking spaces. Open spaces include a roughly 1,700-square-foot interior courtyard and the all-important roof deck. Tomorrow the project goes before the Historic Preservation Commission's Architectural Review Committee for comment. If all goes smoothly, it should land in front of Planning by October.
