[maxgallery name=”1180-4th-street-mercy-housing-summer-2014-update”]Builder James E. Roberts-Obayashi Corps is slowly removing the scaffolding and construction wrap from Mercy Housing’s Mission Bay affordable residential complex. Compared to a site visit in January, the building’s facade is nearly complete and overall the complex looks to be about one to two months from completion. The exterior gill-like vertical slats seen in renderings are yet to be installed and a considerable amount of work is left on the ground level area. For being a partially wood framed and economically built structure, the 149 unit building has a refreshing architecture that will easily stand out among Mission Bay’s current recycled designs. Architecture firms attributed to the building’s design include Daniel Solomon Design Partners / Mithun, Owen Kennerly, and Full Circle Architects. Even though Mercy Housing expected a June opening date, judging by current progress July seems more plausible.
