Warehouse 48

The vision for the Warehouse 48 site is an adaptive re-use of the historic building (formerly owned by Del Monte Foods) and surrounding land. The concept calls for approximately 380 residential units and 30,000 square feet of retail/commercial space. The building will be repurposed and rehabilitated with uses that may include:

  • Office and work space
  • Shops and food sellers
  • Live/work units
  • Residential lofts

In the process of the redevelopment, the plan requires site-specific objectives:

  • Protect and preserve the Del Monte City Monument by allowing economically viable adaptive reuse of the building to ensure that current and future property owners are able to improve, maintain and preserve the building for future generations.
  • Reduce truck traffic in the adjacent neighborhoods by replacing warehouse and trucking uses with employment and residential uses.
  • Improve public access through the site and building to the public waterfront from Buena Vista Avenue and the adjacent neighborhoods
