This hillside village is to be a symbolic gateway at
the southern entrance to San Francisco.
The concept of the development
is based on the following design principles: To
create more open space by providing all underground parking,
with a system of landscaped pedestrian walways; to provide
maximum privacy for all residents with the majority of
units having a panoramic view of the Bay; and to provide
individuality to all residences reminiscent of typical
San Francisco residential architecture.
Crescent Hill will have 565
housing units and supporting commercial facilities, located
on 13.5 acres adjacent to Candlestick Park Stadium.
The primary building elements
include the Crescent houses, whose form gives name to
the project, and the tower, which acts as a visual punctuation
to the Crescent.
