5M PROJECT

5M PROJECT

SITELAB urban studio led the design team and developed the programming, public realm, and urban design for the 5M Project at Fifth and Mission Streets in San Francisco. The 4-acre site includes the historic San Francisco Chronicle Building and a series of adjacent parking lots and small warehouses.

The completed Phase 1 repositioned existing buildings, tenanting 350,000 square feet of office and light industrial, with a significant number of cultural and community anchors including Tech Shop—a making and prototyping facility open to the public, Intersection for the Arts—a gallery, community, and creative instigator, and The Hub—a co-working space focused on social impact. A critical component of the first phase has been strong linkages to the surrounding community and creative organizations with a curated program of user-driven events, community programming and artwork on-site and in the area.  

SITELAB designed the master plan and wrote the design guidelines for Phase 2, a mixed-use development with 1.8M square feet in 2 new residential buildings and an office tower, sited around a central court and rehabilitated historic buildings. The project emphasizes and repurposes the characteristic alleyways of SoMa to connect retail, arts, and the new public spaces at grade and on the Chronicle rooftop. With Forest City, SITELAB guided the project through a robust community engagement process, including site tours, public workshops, and temporary events in partnership with local arts organizations, culminating in project approvals in December 2015.
