Being polite may not work in many areas of politics. Just ask the bombastic and popular presidential hopeful Donald Trump. But in the politics of San Francisco architecture, many times a more sensitive, less impactful, and – as architect IBA Design calls it – more “polite” design will get you pretty far. And such is the case with this building. Horizontal siding, square bay windows, and short roof overhangs are the most interesting aspects of the – yawn – design. Not too flamboyant, not too high, no views blocked and no shadows created – what housing crisis? Approved!
Digging up the names of important stakeholders is a consistently more difficult task when researching these smaller developments. 1450 15th Street was proven to be no exception but enough trolling through the Internet uncovered a Florida company named 10 South Shore LLC as the owner and Byrnes & Mc Clellan Construction Clellan as the builder.
The building is expected to be completed in a year.
