Executive Park San Francisco
In July this year, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a decision to extend Executive Park, a 70-acre office park built in the 1970s into San Francisco’s newest residential neighbourhood.
Located between Candlestick Park and Highway 101, Executive Park is to be a compound for creating a new domestic community on the southern side of the city. The site of the project is both owned and developed by the Yerby Company.
Heller Manus Architects is responsible for five of Yerby’s midrise buildings, including one high-rise tower that will accommodate 500 residential units designed to cater for a wide spectrum of family sizes and their incomes.
Talking about how the design project will transform the community, Clark Manus, FAIA, CEO of Heller Manus Architects, said:
“Executive Park is a gateway project that will be a catalyst in creating a new residential community at the southern entry to San Francisco that will unite the Bayview and recently approved Hunter’s Point to the east and the Little Hollywood and Visitation Valleys to the west.”
The new development exchanges the old office buildings and parking lots for a total of 13 new residential buildings that will comprise of 1,600 apartments and condoniums.
These 1,600 units are part of a much bigger, 2,800 residential development, at the neighbouring Hunters Point and Candlestick Point. The larger development is expected to bring 24,000 new residents and $2 billion to the area in South San Francisco.
