Event description

Description

AIA Member: $15 | General: $25 ; no at-door ticket sales.


This mixed-use development is located in the evolving Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco. On the site of a former rail yard, the project provides dignified housing for extremely low income seniors, the civic functions of a branch public library and public meeting spaces, street-level retail, and rooftop gardens. Between the project’s exterior color palette, its elegant massing, its commitment to sustainability, and its humane civic-mindedness, the development makes an extraordinary contribution to the quality of urban life in San Francisco.


The Day Health Center offers meals, medical care, and social activities. In addition, an Assisted Living level of care is provided by combining day care with independent apartments. Large roof gardens create protected exterior space for the residents. The apartments have open plans to meet mobility needs; living and sleeping rooms are separated by translucent sliding screens – rather than doors – for privacy with natural light. The combination of its mixed-use components create a vibrant community that has a positive impact on the lives of both the residents and community at large. This project has been nationally recognized and has won several design awards including the John M. Clancy Award for Socially Responsible Housing.
