Steps from bustling Market Street, Waller Park is part of a six-acre complex located at the former UC Extension site in the heart of San Francisco. The site plan stitches together an ambitious program of 330 market rate units, 110 LGBT-friendly senior units, a new public park through the Waller Street easement, a community garden and a series of private courts for residents. The park and community garden provide shared space where residents and community members can connect. The design of the landscape integrates innovative ways to bring a wide range of amenities to the housing development and community. These features have helped transform a once-blighted area into a safe, thriving neighborhood. Meyer + Silberberg worked extensively with neighborhood groups and the Planning Department in development of the design.
