This LEED Silver-certified infill project represents the first affordable housing in Mission Bay's urban redevelopment effort.

This 96,000 sf project on Berry Street in the growing Mission Bay North neighborhood consists of two blocks of four-story residential buildings with 131 units. The condominium homes are available to moderate-income families under the First-Time Homeowner program through the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency.

Mission Walk is constructed with cold-formed steel framing. During the design phase, we met with the metal-stud framing subcontractor and the roof-truss manufacturer to coordinate efficient framing details. This approach, as opposed to traditional post-design value engineering, resulted in lower bids and fewer problems during construction.

Structured above-ground parking is hidden behind a perimeter of first-floor townhouses in each building. Built near the bay, the buildings' foundations have piles going down almost 200 feet because the soil is expected to settle over the next 50 years.

Together with several previous light-gauge steel projects, Mission Walk has added to our expertise in this increasingly popular method of construction.
