Just steps from bustling Market Street, Alta Laguna is a six-acre complex located at the former UC Extension site in the heart of San Francisco. The site plan stitches together an ambitious program of 330 market rate units, 110 LGBT-friendly senior units, a new public park through the Waller Street easement, a community garden and a series of private courts for the new residents. With below grade parking, the majority of the landscape is on structure. M+S LA was the common link on the design team which included two developers and four architecture firms. The design of the landscape integrates innovative ways to bring a wide range of amenities to the housing development while implementing extensive storm water management systems. M+S LA worked collaboratively with neighborhood groups and the Planning Department in development of the design.
