Hunters View was the first of eight housing projects that were rebuilt and renovated in San Francisco as part of former Mayor Gavin Newsom’s HOPE SF initiative. The revitalization of the Hunter’s View area in the Bayview District consisted of demolishing 19 existing buildings on the 22.7-acre site. Three new buildings consisting of 148,709 sq. ft. included 106 units of affordable and market-rate housing with ground floor commercial/retail space and a community center. The building types consist of wood-frame buildings of attached single-family homes, townhomes, stacked flats, and townhomes.
This project was funded through San Francisco’s HUD/HOPE VI program. Construction was performed in three phases and all three phases complied with the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency Hiring & Contracting Goals.
The project achieved LEED® certification. Some sustainable building elements include:
- Low VOC materials
- Maximizing insulation use in walls and roofs and by using double-glazed vinyl windows
- Use of florescent light fixtures
- Water-conserving plumbing fixtures
- Adhering to Nibbi’s Indoor Air Quality Management Plan
