In San Francisco, Two High-End Housing Projects Are Making a Long-Awaited Debut

Space and new developments have been hard to come by in the city, but these amenity-filled launches are ready for their close-up

Two new amenity-rich developments—Yerba Buena Island and Treasure Island—are redefining the luxury housing market in San Francisco, a space-limited city that has a reputation for making it exceedingly difficult to get projects approved.

A mile from downtown San Francisco, Yerba Buena Island and neighboring Treasure Island are the largest new development sites in the city. Decades in the making, the two-island, 500-acre development will have 8,000 houses, 1,000 of which are coming on the market over the next year.

The two developments “provide a lifestyle unlike anything else in the city, with nature, waterfront views, outdoor life and home combined all in one location,” said Krysen Heathwood, senior managing director, Western region, Compass Development Marketing Group. “There isn’t another offering like it in San Francisco.”

The dual developments place a priority on resort-style technologies and amenities, indoor-outdoor spaces and luxury experiences.

Yerba Buena Island, which is nearly 50% complete, has applied for LEED Platinum certification. The island’s 72 acres of open space include several original Coast Guard houses and the 25-foot octagonal Yerba Buena Lighthouse tower, which is still operational.
