Pyatok Architects served as the Master Architect, leading design for the entire Avalon Hayes Valley project, collaborating with associate architects Owen Kennerly and Jon Worden, general contractor Build Inc., and structural engineers Nishkian Menninger and Nishkian Monks in Bozeman. Our San Francisco office designed the concrete substructure while our Bozeman office designed the wood superstructure. The overall site footprint is 1.13 acres. The wood superstructure is five-stories of Type III-A totaling 180,000 square feet.
The Avalon Hayes Valley building site is located over the so-called Parcel P, a one-half block, San Francisco Redevelopment Area site located at the corner of Octavia and Oak Streets. It is one of many sites made available by the removal of the Central Freeway after the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. The plot of land that houses this 5-story apartment building was also recently home to Hayes Valley Farm, the urban agriculture experiment. Here’s a look at the newly constructed Avalon Hayes Valley Apartments today:
