Back in August of 2014, we brought you a glimpse of the preliminary renderings for the multi-story residential building headed to the corner of Market and Valencia, where Flax Art & Design stands today.
Today, there's a vastly different design in the works—which should come as some relief to commenters who found nothing to like about the early look.
Solomon Cordwell Buenz Architecture is behind the new design, which incorporates more of a natural, textured element to the facade. The building is still slated to be a nine-story, 162-unit structure with subterranean parking, along with 4,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
With Flax set to vacate its Market Street space soon, moving over to Oakland, demolition and construction could soon be on the way.
So, what do you think of the new design?
