San Francisco’s Extraordinary New Island Community Begins Construction on 31 Timeless, Single-Family Rowhouse Residences and Private, Single Floor Residences 

Residents to Have Access to Five Miles of Trails, 72 Acres of Open Green Space, World-Class International Design, Indoor-Outdoor Living, and Sweeping City and Bay Views

SAN FRANCISCO (September 2021) – Boutique San Francisco developer, Wilson Meany, and real estate investment firm, Stockbridge Capital Group, are pleased to announce the start of construction on The Townhomes and The Flats at Yerba Buena Island. Yerba Buena Island is a naturally formed island, which is a part of the City of San Francisco, nestled in a remarkably distinct setting beside the Bay Bridge. Representing a collection of 31 expansive private residences ranging from ~2,100 – 4,200 square feet, The Townhomes and The Flats are designed to blend in with the island’s topography, providing sweeping views of the San Francisco skyline and surrounding Bay Area, and unprecedented indoor-outdoor living.  The groundbreaking marks a significant milestone for the landmark development, and arrives as construction on The Bristol, a six-story condominium building comprising 124 modern residences, nears completion with move-ins starting in early 2022.

“We are proud to break ground on The Townhomes and The Flats at Yerba Buena Island and start bringing to life these very spacious homes, which are set within a natural oasis with spectacular views in every direction and world-class design by award-winning Hart Howerton and Meyer Davis,” said Chris Meany, Partner at Wilson Meany. “These unique residences invite homeowners to reconsider not only where they live but how they live by providing endless opportunities to be inspired by the outdoors as well as the vibrancy of one of the world’s most spectacular cities.  Already, we’ve seen interest and sales from a variety of buyers including those wanting to move back to San Francisco and others seeking a new way to enjoy the City.”

The Townhomes, single-family rowhouse residences with private entrances; and The Flats, private single-floor residences within boutique luxury buildings with dramatic views; embody the best of island living. Each element of the residences showcases distinct high design, tied together by an overarching architectural vision by award-winning firm, Hart Howerton.

The Townhomes

The Townhomes at Yerba Buena Island are single-family rowhouse residences with private entrances and attached garages, designed to follow the natural contours of the island’s hillsides. Select Townhomes feature elevators, and each one boasts large bay windows and generous terraces that capture panoramic island, Bay and City views. With interiors by Meyer Davis, these spacious, three- and four-level residences were envisioned for indoor-outdoor gatherings and entertaining. The first release of Townhomes are priced starting from the mid $3 millions.

The Flats

The Flats at Yerba Buena Island offer private, LEED® certified single-floor luxury residences that showcase the best of indoor-outdoor living. Interiors open to expansive private terraces across the ~2,500-4,000-square-foot, three-to-four-bedroom floor plans, all with sweeping views of the Bay. Featuring interiors by Meyer Davis, living spaces showcase grand windows and elegantly modern finishes. The boutique buildings each hold seven, single-story residences, each of which are serviced by a private elevator that opens directly into the home. The first release of Flats are priced starting from $3.7 million.

Island Living

Over two decades in the making, Yerba Buena Island brings forth a new standard of city living, merging nature, wellness, and community into daily life. 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.

“San Francisco has never seen residential offerings like The Townhomes and The Flats at Yerba Buena Island, which present the distinctive opportunity to own single-family homes on an island,” said Mike Leipart, Managing Partner of The Agency Development Group, who oversees the marketing and sales of Yerba Buena Island.  “As construction is now underway, we can’t wait for residents to soon be able to move into these remarkable private homes.”

Early buyers at The Bristol, The Townhomes and The Flats are extended membership into the Yerba Buena Island Coastal Society. A one-of-a-kind club for pioneering homeowners, the Coastal Society affords this limited group of residents exclusive benefits such as invitations to private events, curated gifts, and more – all designed to further enhance life on the island.

Residential move-ins are expected to begin at The Townhomes and The Flats at Yerba Buena Island in late 2022.  Yerba Buena Island’s experiential Sales Gallery, located directly across from The Battery at 724 Battery Street, is open seven days a week.
