Apartment giant Avalon Bay has begun working on its massive 326-unit Dogpatch rental project, according to the Registry. The complex will stretch over three buildings and will replace what is now the San Francisco Opera's warehouse building. The developer is known for big, pricey complexes like Avalon Hayes Valley, where studios started at $3,210 per month when the building opened just under a year ago. The Dogpatch development has an expected average rent per unit of $4,450 per month.
The new Dogpatch complex will sit at 800 Indiana Street, in the shadow of the 280 freeway and a very short walk away from the 22nd Street Caltrain station. It will also be near Esprit Park and the main attractions of Dogwatch's Third Street. The three architects behind the project are Pyatok Architects, Kennelly Architecture + Planning, and Mithun/Solomon. Three public plazas will be included, one at the entry of each building, and a set of interior courtyards sit at the center. The first residents are expected to move in by late 2017.
