It may not look like much now, but Potrero Hill's stretch of 16th Street might just be poised to transform into a dense mixed-use corridor. On 16th between Wisconsin and Carolina, right near EQR Potrero, plans have emerged for a prodigious block-long midrise on the site of a windowless concrete warehouse. The project, known as 1301 Sixteenth, is being developed and designed by Workshop1, the selfsame team behind 901 Tennessee. The seven-story building is slated to bring 234 new residences, 38 of which will be classified as below market rate. According to the project's website, city regulations also demand that 40 percent of the new units be "family style"—that is, offering two or more bedrooms.
The building's future residents will have access to a roof deck with Potrero's spectacular skyline views, as well as a large south-facing courtyard on the second floor. Down by the lobby, there will be two bicycle stations with space for 264 bikes. The plans also call for ground-floor retail to line 16th Street, livening up the quiet corridor. Should all go according to plan, the project will obtain approvals next winter, and break ground shortly thereafter.
