The residential program above this podium consists of a variety of unit types, including junior one bedroom, one bedroom units, two bedroom units, as well as some multi-level townhouse units.

The San Francisco Design Guidelines established different design character for the various streets around Venue. The main / front façade on Fourth Street faces that major arterial with predominantly six stories, stepping down to five stories, with a glazed ground level retail frontage that steps in and out creating an interesting community experience.

Mission Rock Street and the Vara are envisioned as neighborhood streets with a residential scale, including residential units up about half a level on the Vara with entry by individual stoops that ascend to their front door entry terrace to enhance the sense of community.
