North Beach Place

Location: San Francisco

Project Type:

The success of this mixed-use development rests on its two acres of on-structure landscaping. PGAdesign played a proactive role in con­ceiving the project as a green roof rather than a hardscape-dominated platform. The podium allows for underground parking, street-level shops and 341 apartments, all interwoven with outdoor spaces. Richly planted beds feature different tree species for each cluster of units as well as a diversity of plant species well-suited to the local micro-climate and limited soil depths.

Urban streetscapes with planting, benches, and granite cobbles at tree wells front stores and the Taylor Street cable car terminus. Free-flowing contours designed for the paths and planting areas unify what has been called “the largest mixed-use, mixed-income development of its kind in California.”

Awards

  • 2006 Green Rooftops for Sustainable Communities Award
  • 2005 SF Business Times: Best Intensive Residential + Best Affordable Residential
  • 2005 SF Business Times: Community Impact/SF Winner
