Just a block from the newly created Octavia Boulevard—a boutique retail corridor that replaced the demolished Central Freeway—300 Ivy is a mixed-use development of urban market-rate homes and shops.

At the southwest corner of Grove and Gough Streets in Hayes Valley, the development brings 63 new flats and townhouses to the neighborhood. Along Gough Street, lively storefronts make up a pedestrian-friendly retail row, with prominent corner facades at both Ivy and Grove.

The homes are above open and inviting retail storefronts and follow a pattern and scale consistent with the Hayes Valley neighborhood.

The ground level residential is activated by stoops, a traditional strategy.

There are five town homes that are entered directly from Ivy Alley. They are 3 stories tall and feature roof desks.

The Feng Shui compliant entry is off the narrow Ivy Street. Bicycle parking is located next to the main door behind the sliding barn doors.

The roof has a large deck for residents. It includes an outdoor kitchen and dining space, a sunbathing area, and planters for urban agriculture. Fletcher Studio designed the landscaping and the furniture, which was fabricated locally by OHIO Design.

The apartments feature clean, modern design.


In response to the central, transit-rich location, this project is “parking lite," with one automobile space for every two units. There is extensive enclosed bicycle parking, much of it in a convenient bike station right by the front door.
