Executive Park: From Office Park To Neighborhood As Long Proposed
One of the big items on the agenda for San Francisco’s Planning Commission this afternoon, General Plan, planning code, and zoning map amendments for the 70-acre site adjacent to Candlestick Point known as Executive Park.
The Executive Park area is divided into three subareas generally defined by property ownership and phase of entitlement. The central area includes three office buildings (approximately 307,000 gross square feet) and expansive surface parking. Two areas to the north and northeast of the office park are being developed for residential use. Signature Properties is developing the portion of Executive Park directly north of the office park, and when complete, will consist of approximately 450 dwelling units, and 14,000 square feet of retail. The Signature Project includes three podium buildings (between the heights of 60 and 90 feet tall) and a series of joined townhouse structures. At this point, only one podium building has been built along with roughly half of the planned townhouses. An expansive natural open space along the hillside has been improved in conjunction with the Signature development; it includes a public trail to a hilltop lookout.
To the northeast of the office development is another residential development being constructed by Top Vision. Five buildings consisting of roughly 300 units have been constructed, three of which sit atop a hilltop embankment overlooking Harney Way and the Candlestick Point State Recreation Area (CPSRA). A final phase for Top Vision has been approved for an addition 465 dwelling units upslope from the existing buildings which has not yet been constructed. These units would be within podium buildings and a 160‐foot residential tower.
In the works since 2006, the proposed amendments would allow the two sponsoring development groups, Universal Paragon and Yerby, to raze and redevelop the central office components of Executive Park as 1,600 housing units, 70,000 square feet of retail, and roughly 2,400 parking spaces with buildings rising between 65 and 240 feet tall.

Looking forward to having more retail in the neighborhood. It's comforting to know the size of the proposed project. Hopefully this will also kick off development at the old Schlage lock factory.
