City Storage and Retail

location:4000 Adeline, Emeryville
owner:City Storage of San Francisco
completion:January 2015

We converted this single-story brick warehouse in Emeryville into a two-story self-storage facility for City Storage of San Francisco. We retained the brick shell but completely gutted the interior and added a new steel framed structure. Behind the brick we added a new concrete wall that extends above the brick walls to accommodate the new 2nd floor. Folded Corten steel panels designed by local artisan Melissa MacDonald cover the exposed concrete and make a distinctive pattern around top of the building. We added a partial third floor for a 2-bedroom managers unit. A tenant space at the corner of the building will be home to a new bar/restaurant (currently under construction).
