Construction underway on the new Avalon Bay Hayes ValleyOct 16 2013 · 0 comments · NISHKIAN MENNINGER, Residential ·0
San Francisco, CA – Construction of the new high-profile mixed-use market rate apartments developed by Avalon Bay Communities on Octavia Boulevard in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley is taking shape. This project has included close collaboration with the San Francisco Planning Department and the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development (MOEWD) to develop a design that integrates the project with the surrounding vibrant and revitalized neighborhood and responds to the Market-Octavia Area Plan. Pyatok Architects serves as the Master Architect, leading design for the entire project, collaborating with associate architects Owen Kennerly and Jon Worden, structural engineers Nishkian Menninger, and general contractor Build, Inc. The redevelopment site is located over the so-called Parcel P, the largest of the city-owned sites which was originally the on-ramp to Highway 101 Southbound from Oak Street before it was damaged by the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. The site was also recently home to Hayes Valley Farm. The site program for this project includes the Living Alley concept for the extension of Hickory Street between Octavia Boulevard and Laguna Street. 182 new rental units including studio, one and two bedroom units are organized in four main buildings around three courtyards, one of which is a through-block courtyard. Roof decks at the Laguna and Octavia Street buildings will provide substantial open space for residents, who will also have access to neighborhood park Patricia’s Green. This project is scheduled to be completed in 2014. For more renderings and site excavation photos, visit Curbed SF .
