BUILD welcomes all community members to participate in our design process, celebrate our projects and partners, and attend social gatherings.
Concerts in the Plaza
The Dogpatch Arts Plaza at BUILD’s O&M project hosted a fall concert series on Tuesdays and Saturdays from noon to 1pm. We were encouraged by everyone bringing their lunch and enjoying the sun and music at this great public space!
Pink Saturday Revival
Pink Saturday, which originated out of the 1990 AIDS protests and soon became a formal SF Pride event, is back and stronger than ever. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a self-identified Order of queer nuns, organized the revived event that is now named, “Pink Saturday Unchained.” The event took place at our Eagle Plaza Site across the way from SF Eagle, a staple bar in the SF LGBT community.
An Inconvenient Barn
As documented in this San Francisco Magazine article by Danelle Morton–“An Inconvenient Barn”–BUILD has worked closely with neighbors of our India Basin project to find win-win solutions. This article details how BUILD has spent two years working with India Basin resident Michael Hamman to incorporate his property and historic barn into the new design for the neighborhood. We are proud to have structured an arrangement that maintains the historic structure, reconnects it with the Bay shoreline, provides a more cohesive design for the development project.
SFHAC Housing Tour of O&M
BUILD was pleased to host SFHAC’s New Housing Tour at our O&M development. Over 30 people were treated to unit, roofdeck, and courtyard tours with commentary by the architects of each building: Peter Pfau for Building “O” and Owen Kennerly for Building “M”.
