Boutique developer Wilson Meany and real estate investment firm Stockbridge Capital Group have revealed world-class designs for Yerba Buena Island, following the start of construction on the first phase of new residences. This milestone project, two decades in the making, represents the creation of an inspiring new community of 266 luxury residences nestled in a naturally formed island, in the heart of the San Francisco Bay. The community will provide a host of wellness-minded amenities, along with access to parks, Clipper Cove Beach, trails, and more - creating an idyllic experience merely ten minutes from downtown San Francisco. Sales are scheduled to commence in early 2020, with the first move-ins taking place in 2021.

Andy Ardila, Managing Director at The Agency Development Group that oversees the sales and market of the project, and veteran of the real estate development and new construction industry, commented, “I realized immediately that Yerba Buena Island represented a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of a Bay Area icon. It offers authentically unique San Francisco living with incredible views, luxury amenities and seamless access to both nature and the City.” The collection of exceptional, forward-thinking residences – condominiums, flats and townhomes – will reflect sustainable designs that honor the diverse topography of the island while capturing 360-degree views of the Bay, San Francisco skyline, bridges, and mountainous landscapes beyond.

Seventy-five percent of Yerba Buena Island is being preserved for open space. The community boasts approximately 72 acres of natural habitat with parks, beaches, and five miles of hiking and biking paths. The architecture and design of Yerba Buena Island honors the island’s distinct geography. A team of award-winning firms, including Hart Howerton, BDE Architecture, Inc., Cliff Lowe Associates, Inc., Hood Design Studio, Edmonds + Lee Architects, Meyer Davis and Aidlin Darling Design, are collaborating on the overall vision, which is influenced by the Bay Area’s rich architectural history.

Wilson Meany, responsible for the development of the historic San Francisco Ferry Building and Art Deco icon 140 New Montgomery, among other notable works, has a track record for creating holistic environments. Chris Meany, co-founder and managing partner, remarks, “Yerba Buena Island is an entirely new residential community. Led by Hart Howerton, a community of residences, amenities, parks, trails and natural landscape will encourage people to live in San Francisco the way it was meant to be lived, in touch with the incredible beauty around us, a commitment to well-being, and a belief in the future.”

Yerba Buena Island homeowners will be afforded a unique, robust suite of dedicated amenities designed to nurture their well-being, as well as an inherent sense of community. Additional community features include a 14,000-square-foot Island Club, a series of hiking and biking trails that stretch from the community’s hilltop parks to the shoreline below, as well as an impressive contemporary art program.
