Situated near BART and downtown South San Francisco, The Linden demonstrates continued demand for centrally located urban living in post-pandemic world

SAN FRANCISCO–Suffolk, one of the most innovative and successful builders and real estate enterprises in the country, recently completed the construction of 200 Linden Avenue, a 97-unit condominium building in South San Francisco that includes 78 market-rate and 19 affordable units. Centrally located near downtown South San Francisco and the city’s Caltrain station, 200 Linden is a multi-family, eight-story complex developed by Hisense Real Estate and designed by BDE Architecture. The new development, officially called The Linden, demonstrates the demand for public transit and urban living in a post-COVID world.

“Thoughtful residential development, particularly projects which address critical issues like affordability and access to transportation, drive cultural and economic progress in our communities,” said Mike DiNapoli, General Manager of Suffolk Northern California. “Suffolk is proud to use innovative processes and technology to support the development of community-focused projects like The Linden which contribute to South San Francisco’s bright future.”

The building features contemporary architecture designs and offers a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans, each with their own unique layouts and amenities. Residents have a variety of indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, including a designer lobby with lounge seating areas; a lushly landscaped courtyard; a community clubhouse and beautiful views. There’s also one garage parking space per residence, with electric vehicle (EV) stations available, as well as bike parking and EV bike charging outlets.

Suffolk utilized MiTek cold form steel (CFS) panels in the construction of the superstructure. Considering the unprecedented constraints due to COVID, the implementation of these panels resulted in significant positive schedule impacts for the project. In fact, 200 Linden is the only building in the world to use these panels stacked on five levels in a wood-framed structure. MiTek technology has proved so effective that the Suffolk team is considering incorporating it into the design process for Type III construction projects.
