Candlestick Point

Candlestick Block 10a is a 100% affordable housing project, with integrated gardens on all 7 levels of the building.  An apple orchard, persimmon grove, and rotating full season agricultural beds form multi-functional spaces integrated with community gathering and play.  Agricultural spaces become a source of community enrichment that fosters a sense of place and strengthening of the social fabric.   Stormwater management strategies include bio-retention and green roof gardens throughout the building, integrating landscape pockets within the typology of the architecture envelope.   Located adjacent San Francisco’s eastern waterfront, this neighborhood is planned and constructed at a higher elevation -  at least 10’ above existing grade - for protection against future storm surges and sea-level rise.
