This Micro-Housing Developer is Smokin'
To celebrate the topping off of its 12th floor, the gang behind the Panoramic project threw a party Friday afternoon. We zipped up to the roof with Panoramic Interests' Patrick Kennedy, the developer behind the micro-housing project delivering at the corner of 9th and Mission next June. The project will contain 120 microstudios and 40 microsuites, or two and three-bedroom apartments.
Patrick thinks it will lease well to the “Twitterati” of S.F. (one half is set aside for the California College of the Arts). He picked CBRE's Ben Lazzareschi to market its 3,200 SF retail space. Leasing will start in early 2015. Above, another vista from the roof with Pankow Builders' Frank Murphy and Marc Valls. Patrick's next micro project will land across the Bay: He tells us he just got design/review approval this month for The Nexus, a 70-unit micro-housing concept a third of a mile from Berkeley's campus.
What's a topping off party without a little beer? To thank the construction team, they got to clock out early on Friday afternoon. (Plus the project is already a few weeks ahead of schedule, we learned.) The fete included horchata, a taco truck, a raffle and rousing rounds of corn hole.
