Along the Embarcadero located in the Northeast Waterfront Historic District and adjacent to the historic Telegraph Hill neighborhood, Broadway Cove will provide 125 affordable family units, helping to protect some of San Francisco’s most vulnerable citizens from displacement. The ground floor provides community spaces, commercial space, a YMCA childcare center, live-work flats, and a public mid-block passage that will enrich and serve the larger neighborhood. Broadway Cove is certified GreenPoint Rated Platinum.
“What it is, is humane—helping to erase the scar of a freeway and enrich the sense of community between Telegraph Hill and the Embarcadero. Instead of an isolated enclave centered on Levi’s Plaza, this area starts to feel like part of the larger city, with a population made more diverse by the new residents."
