Connecting to the
A walkable lifestyle
The 3333 California project will transform an underutilized corporate office site into a beautiful, high-quality residential and mixed-use environment that feels like it is within a park. Pedestrian walkways and street connectors will create beautiful pathways to open the site up and invite neighbors in, allowing for a walkable lifestyle with strong connectivity to and from surrounding neighborhoods. A serious lack of new housing in the City will be addressed with up to 15 new residential buildings containing 744 residential dwellings and a compatible mix of community-serving uses including ground floor shops, dining, and neighborhood-friendly businesses. Childcare, wellness programs, and substantial open space amenities will further benefit residents and neighbors alike.
Over 10 acres of transformational
open space, residential homes, and mixed-use.

A healthy environment
for community interaction
The 3333 California Street Base Project will consist of three mixed-use buildings and twelve residential buildings on the 10.3 acre site ranging from 2 units per building up to 139 units. The Base Project totals 558 new homes catering to a broad range of existing and future San Franciscans. More than half of the homes are family-friendly and spacious, including two, three, and four-bedroom units and two-unit townhomes. å
At the City’s request, the project is also including a Residential Design Variant with a total of 744 residential units. The variant simply removes the 49,999 square feet of commercial office space from the project and replaces the commercial use with 186 housing units on the same parcel on California Street across from the San Francisco Jewish Community Center. All other buildings on the site are identical in the base and variant designs. All buildings on the property—both adaptive reuse and new construction—will employ best practices in sustainability, utilizing natural materials and energy efficient electrical and mechanical systems, while providing expansive green and open area on more than 5 acres of the site.

Celebrating California’s indigenous biodiversity
The design for 3333 California includes more than five acres of green and open space, comprising approximately half of the property. Landscaping throughout the site celebrates California’s indigenous biodiversity, inspired by a Cypress grove, flowering gardens, a verdant ravine, Oak trees, Walnut trees, Redwood trees and other old-growth trees, in addition to many new trees. A large green park is perched on the southwest corner of the site above the neighborhood to take in scenic vistas, including the Golden Gate Bridge and downtown city views. The large areas of green and open space will improve air quality and create a healthy environment for residents of the project and the community.
A focus on community wellness and urban ecosystems
Sustainability is a key element in the vision for 3333 California. The team intends to meet or exceed the requirements of the San Francisco Green Building Ordinance by achieving a minimum of LEED Gold for Neighborhood Development Plan certification. The team aspires for a project that will be a net positive development for the community and the environment, exceeding code requirements for energy and water, and having a positive impact on community wellness, connectivity, material and waste management, and urban ecosystems.
New buildings will be constructed using natural, top-quality materials, and sited in a way that celebrates important view corridors. Efficient and renewable energy systems and waste management will minimize the project’s carbon footprint, and the use of green roofs, storm-water capture, and solar panels will further extend the eco-friendliness of 3333 California – as an asset for the community, now and into the future.
