This building is the largest new 100% affordable development to open in San Francisco in a decade. Located in the rapidly developing Mission Bay area adjacent to the new UCSF Medical Center, the building provides 200 affordable, mixed-use transit-oriented new homes for low-income families, plus 10,000-sf of neighborhood-serving retail space. A gateway to a new neighborhood, the main corner is a dramatic form clad with custom-perforated weathering steel and visually supported by a row of “dancing columns” — tilting textured-concrete columns that make for a lighthearted and dynamic street edge. The façade also anticipates the future park across the street, on a site temporarily activated by a mini-golf course. Residential stoops connect directly to sidewalks and will be well situated for this coming park, and a new pedestrian passage breaks up the large block and connects the park to Mission Bay Boulevard North.
