Hunters View Master Plan
San Francisco’s most distressed public housing site, Hunters View, is the first project in the city’s HOPE SF reconstruction program. Dan Solomon, FAIA and Anne Torney, AIA began work as Hunters View master planner, coordinating architect, and architect for Block 4, prior to becoming Partners at Mithun. Community process informed the master plan design, program and phasing of a 750-unit mixed-income neighborhood plan to transform Hunters View. Deteriorating barracks units from the 1940s and 1950s will be replaced with a neighborhood that has the organization and character of the city’s historic neighborhoods. New public housing is mixed with other rental and ownership units, tripling density and providing new, energy-efficient, healthy homes at a range of incomes. New streets and pathways link this once-isolated site to transit, schools and shopping. Two new parks capture views of downtown and the bay. Construction of Phase I of Hunters View is complete, including Block 4, the largest and most complex block of the first phase. Blocks 5 and 6 were designed by Paulette Taggart Architects.
