Located in the heart of the historic Sixth Street Lodging House District, this mixed-use project reanimates an abandoned corner with 67 affordable family apartments and restaurant, retail, and community spaces. The landscape design includes a lively and dynamic courtyard that features a series of undulating turf mounds. The mounds activate this small and shady urban space and provide a vivid environment for play and socializing for kids of all ages.
The project also includes a roof terrace with an edible garden, an outdoor dining space and views of downtown San Francisco.
