Located in San Francisco’s Bayview District, this affordable family townhouse community is part of a trend of transit-oriented development along Third Street, and lies just a block from a stop of the new Muni Third Street Light Rail. It was designed and built in conjunction with the adjacent Armstrong Senior Housing
, which brings new neighborhood-serving retail space and community services to the area.
Two sections of stacked townhouses flank a large shared open public courtyard and also each feature a private gated courtyard. The central public courtyard features allotment gardens for families to grow food and flowers, as well as a rain garden to manage and clean stormwater biodynamically.
This project was designed and built in tandem with Armstrong Place Senior. Together the projects won a 2012 ULI Global Award for Excellence noting their effect as a catalyst for development in the neighborhood. The Urban Land Institute's Global Awards for Excellence recognize developments that have an enduring impact on diverse communities.
