Experience Counts

After 20 years of colloborating with David Baker + Partners on some of the most interesting live-work, mixed-use, and residential developments in the Bay Area, it isn't to be taken lightly when they say they think they've created their best work yet with the Pacific Cannery Lofts. With 3 new models being finished up, everyday we're able to see more and more of what this finished community will look like and the faces that will fill it.

Most comparable in design and location to the Clocktower Lofts at 2nd & Bryant (461 2nd Street) in San Francisco, the Pacific Cannery boasts more lofts, more courtyards, more floorplans, and more savings. It is a fitting touch that the two projects are just 10 minutes apart, located adjacent to the Bay Bridge, one on the west end, one on the east. If that wasn't enough, even their history is connected: the Schmidt Lithograph company that originally owned and operated the Clocktower Building was the creator of the fruit labels for the Pacific Coast Canning Company (former operators of the Pacific Cannery) nearly 100 years ago. As Rick Holliday wrote, de ja vu all over again.
