Hope SF: Rebuild Potrero
San Francisco, CA
Landscape Architect: Gary L. Strang
Project Manager: Wendy Mok
Job Captain: Elizabeth Bouchard
Client: Bridge Housing/Build
Rebuild Potrero is a 38-acre redevelopment site on the steep south facing slope of Potrero Hill. 606 units of aging federally owned public housing will be replaced with new public housing, subsidized by a denser and more diverse mix of market rate and affordable housing with streets, parks, community services, recreation and retail. A new street grid supporting higher densities and dramatic views will replace the low density suburban site plan, which has left the neighborhood socially and physically isolated from the adjacent historic working class neighborhood, transit and services. By carefully phasing construction, current residents will not be required to relocate offsite at anytime during the process. The design is for a complete neighborhood, serving not only the redeveloped site but also the surrounding area.
