A New San Francisco Neighborhood
Our team’s proposed development will make the Balboa Reservoir into a welcoming community organized around a large central park with connections to surrounding neighborhoods. Like the best San Francisco neighborhoods, this will be a diverse community serving a range of incomes and household types, with a special focus on families with children and CCSF faculty and staff. It will also be a deeply sustainable place that prioritizes walking, biking, and the shared stewardship of resources. Most importantly, this community will be called home by up to 1,100 San Francisco households, at least half of whom will qualify for affordable/workforce housing. The Balboa Reservoir has the potential to have a meaningful impact on the Bay Area’s housing crisis.
News and Updates:
Closer to the end of 2022 we will host another meeting regarding infrastructure and construction activities that we expect in 2023. We hope to once again have these meetings at Unity Plaza so that we can continue to get face time with the community. Keep an eye out for more information about the community meetings in the next few months.

Collaborative Community Process
Every member of our team has a longstanding reputation for in-depth and successful community-oriented development. The first step to any successful project is a deep understanding of the project context – the people, places, institutions, and patterns that shape any neighborhood’s daily life. Since 2017 we have begun to gain some of this understanding through the engagement with the Balboa Reservoir CAC, and what we have learned from the community has shaped the development greatly. We are eager to continue our dialogue with community members, neighbors, the CCSF community, business owners, and a broad range of stakeholders as we continue with this project. Please join us as we continue to refine the site design and help us develop more detailed plans for parks and open space, architecture, transportation and parking, sustainability, and the other aspects of the proposed project.
