Yerba Buena Island Debuts San Francisco’s Premier Townhome Collection

The new Townhomes within The Cove Residences enclave redefine luxury living with a focus on sustainability and community.

San Francisco, renowned for its vibrant city life juxtaposed against breathtaking natural beauty, now offers a rare gem that marries urban living with a serene, vacation-like experience. Nestled atop the naturally formed Yerba Buena Island, between Downtown San Francisco and the East Bay, the new Townhomes within The Cove Residences enclave redefine luxury living with a focus on sustainability and community.

Designed by the esteemed architectural firm Hart Howerton, known for their work on premier resort and private club communities, and featuring interior concepts by Meyer Davis, these attached single-family townhomes embody a timeless modern interpretation of the classic San Francisco row home. Each residence boasts overwater sunrise and sunset views, providing a daily spectacle of nature’s beauty.

The architectural design of these homes is inspired by San Francisco’s finely crafted building traditions, harmonizing seamlessly with the island’s natural landscape. With floor plans ranging from 1,956 to 4,034 square feet and starting from the high $2 million range, the Townhomes offer two, three, and four-bedroom layouts, catering to a variety of lifestyles.

What sets these homes apart is their commitment to sustainability. Designed to obtain LEED Silver certification, each residence integrates solar panels into its sophisticated design, prioritizing environmental efficiency while preserving the island’s natural beauty.
“The Townhomes draw inspiration from the finely crafted building traditions of San Francisco coupled with the latest innovations of building materials and technology,” said Tim Slattery, AIA, a Partner at Hart Howerton.

Spanning 2,253 square feet, the Showcase Townhome at Yerba Buena Island, staged by BraytonHughes, exemplifies the seamless blend of city sophistication and natural beauty. With floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious terraces, and a rooftop deck offering panoramic views, this residence captures the essence of island living.
