1180 Fourth Street marks a prominent corner gateway to the Mission Bay South neighborhood, with three distinct facades that each take cues from the different ground-floor uses, adding variety to a neighborhood often criticized for monolithic architecture. The building includes 150 units for low-income individuals and families, retail space, and a community center. Perforated metal sunshades add further variety to the building’s prow facing the sharply angled street corner.
