SAN FRANCISCO | Parkmerced Redevelopment

Massive Parkmerced Project Slated To Break Ground

August 4, 2015
SocketSite



The massive redevelopment plan for Parkmerced includes 5,679 net new units of housing, for a neighborhood total of 8,900; a network of new neighborhood parks, athletic fields, greenways and an organic farm; new underground garages on the west side of the site to discourage casual car usage by residents concentrated in buildings on the eastern side of the site; and a rerouting of MUNI’s M Ocean View line from 19th Avenue through the development, along with re-designed streets, bike paths and other transportation improvements.

And if everything goes as currently planned, construction for the first phase of the three-decade project, which includes the building of 1,668 housing units, of which 222 will be one-to-one replacement units for those demolished during Phase One, has been scheduled to commence in early February 2016.

Cool. Very ambitious.

Is there a concern that this level of density is too much for a single Muni line to handle?

It is a very impressive masterplan, the only thing that could make it better would have been a few 30+ floor highrises mixed in.

Personally I am not a fan of the "tower in a park" type of structure. It basically means people need to drive everywhere and discourages walking. Residential towers belong downtown as part of a continuous commercial streetwall so the residents have most retail and other commercial needs within a few blocks and perhaps can even walk to work.

There's already highrises at Parkmerced. All I'm saying is it would have been cool to add a few really tall ones. Not sure how that would be harmful.
