Modeled after Hayes Valley's Proxy project, which houses the likes of Smitten Ice Cream and Biergarten in repurposed shipping containers, 4505's patio will boast a semi-covered seating area sheltered by the shipping container's overhang and protected from winds by a low wall (see renderings here). According to the architect, it's still a few months out. [TBI]
