Homeowners have unlimited access to 72 acres of parks and open green spaces and five miles of trails that connect the residences, private amenities, parks and beachfront. The rugged terrain and unique topography of the naturally formed Yerba Buena Island create an unparalleled setting for daily wellbeing. Outdoor amenities include Hilltop Park, designed by MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Walter Hood and situated at the highest point of the island with 360-degree views of the Bay, Clipper Cove – a protected area featuring the island’s sandy beachfront with calm waters for paddle-boarding and kayaking – and a scenic dog park with off-leash play areas in the center of the island.
The Island Club, a private, multi-level community gathering place designed by San Francisco-based firm, Aidlin Darling Design, offers a 10,000-square-foot oasis to relax and recharge, boasting a weight and cardio room, yoga studio and stretching room, massage room, outdoor pool and hot tub, spa-inspired locker rooms, steam and sauna spaces, a private dining room, a lounge and library, a game room, an outdoor fireplace, and captivating views.
“Yerba Buena Island allows residents to experience San Francisco from a new perspective, in the manner in which it’s meant to be lived – with lush nature literally at your doorstep, a likeminded community, and access to the best of island and city life in one of the most spectacular settings,” said Chris Meany, Partner at Wilson Meany. “We are proud to have arrived at this highly anticipated moment as we commence sales on a diverse collection of residences, each of which feature an inspired island mindset, intentional design by a team of world-class talent, and a sensibility of community and culture that fosters an enhanced lifestyle.
