The Landing (22nd Street Building) is part of a 250-unit residential development. At the confluence of the post-industrial Dogpatch and residential Potrero Hill neighborhoods, the architecture and landscape project provides a pedestrian continuation of 22nd street at a location once interrupted by the railway. The private residential development offers land back to the city in order to provide for the public reconnection of neighborhoods following the tradition of public stairs connecting hillside streets throughout San Francisco.
