8th and Harrison Housing

location:San Francisco, CA
developer:Fairfield Residential Company LLC
completion:Fall 2016 estimated

8th and Harrison is an entire city block of market rate housing in San Francisco’s SOMA district, providing 410 units of much needed rental apartments. This new mixed-use project will consist of eight buildings along four streets with new internal alleys on a 3.36 acre site. Units will consist of flats, lofts, flex units (with attached garage spaces), and two story townhomes. At the ground floor along Gordon Street will be 10,600 square feet of arts activity/PDR space. The site will include a public park with a cafe and 44,500 sq ft of open space. At the ground floor along the major streets, we are providing high ceiling space for retail and commercial use.

The design places taller structures along the busy corridors of 8th and Harrison Street while reducing the scale along the side and rear alley of Gordon Street. The project will have internal alleyways for vehicular circulation through the site. There will be residential parking spaces for 315 cars and 414 bicycles.

The development is pursuing Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification and is intended to achieve the LEED Silver rating.
