Alchemy by Alta - Woods Hall

San Francisco, CA
Description Credits/Info

Recently opened, this vibrant new community with 330 market-rate multifamily units, including 50 Below Market Rate units and significant amenities, is Certified LEED-ND (Neighborhood Development) Gold, and targeting Green Point Rating compliance for new buildings.

Imparting a specific and distinctive design response to enable connection between people and place, Alchemy by Alta comprises a series of five buildings, spaces and details that thoughtfully resonate and respond to the historic Hayes Valley neighborhood. Contributing to this dynamic blend of urban living is the adaptive reuse and expansion to the existing historic Spanish Colonial Revival Woods Hall, and Woods Hall Annex, into a 12,000 square foot community facility and garden, as well as 23 residential units.

Integrated into the overall project is the design of several outdoor spaces including the new 28,000 sf Waller Park that traverses the entire two block steep site from east to west. A mews runs north to south and intersects Waller Park in a central plaza. The new community garden adjacent to Woods Hall and with a series of stepped terraces provides yet another public gathering space that adds to the richness and variety of this engaging community.
