AVA 55 Ninth

Location: San Francisco

Project Type:

This 273-unit market-rate apartment complex, aimed at the tech worker market, is across the street from Twitter’s headquarters in the transitioning mid-Market neighborhood of San Francisco. PGAdesign focused the landscape design around two courtyards and incorporated recycled materials, such as recycled blue glass in a gabion wall. A cistern collects stormwater for irrigation. The project achieved LEED Gold.

Stripes of black and white rock alternate with dramatic plantings, providing a contemporary feel. A playful, bold paving pattern helps define the placement of key elements. An outdoor movie wall shields spaces for outdoor cooking and dining from the neighborhood’s strong winds.
