San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market : 901 Rankin Street
The first new building of the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market’s Master Plan is this 85,000 sf LEED Gold fresh food distribution facility at 901 Rankin Street. Our studio has led an intensive design and construction process with Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company to convert the site of a former army supply depot into a sustainable fresh food distribution hub. The design expresses itself through the use of exposed concrete tilt-up panels and a profiled aluminum skin. Designed for long term durability and flexibility, the building features large, open high bay warehouse space with contiguous office space located on a second level. Innovative and sustainable features include passive cooling, heat recovery ventilators in combination with an innovative ventilation system, daylighting, recycled material use, and storm water control measures.
