Lifestyle Taking Shape on San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Island

by | Jul 6, 2021

San Francisco’s new collection of 266 timeless residences on Yerba Buena Island is coming to life beautifully. A project that has been envisioned for decades and located on the naturally-formed island in the middle of the Bay, Yerba Buena Island features extraordinary homes and world-class amenities, located a ten-minute ferry ride from Downtown San Francisco. Represented by The Agency Development Group, Yerba Buena Island features a diverse collection of carefully crafted residences ranging from condominiums to custom estates, each modern and offering a distinct, wellness-centric San Francisco lifestyle.

Now well underway and expected to be completed in early 2022, The Bristol condominium building is nestled on a forested hillside, featuring 124 residences thoughtfully designed by Hart Howerton and Edmonds + Lee Architects, panoramic views of Clipper Cove and the eastern span of the Bay Bridge, and a landscaped open-air courtyard that provides an escape from the energy of the city. Just beyond the front door are the amenities of Yerba Buena Island and an unparalleled outdoor-driven lifestyle unlike anything else within the city.

Within the tree-lined terrain and unique topography are 72 acres of parks and open green spaces, creating a truly verdant oasis. Five miles of trails connect the residences, private amenities, parks and beachfront. The trails range from paved walkways and hillside stairs to leafy paths, offering a variety of experiences and vistas. The main trail connects to the 500-mile San Francisco Bay Trail, which winds through nine counties, 47 cities and the East Bay.

Among Yerba Buena Island’s incredible amenities is The Island Club—a private, multi-story community gathering place. The ~10,000-square-foot club provides a place to relax and recharge on your own or with neighbors and friends with views of the pool, Hilltop Park, the San Francisco skyline and Golden Gate Bridge as your backdrop.

With the city at your fingertips, Yerba Buena Island is San Francisco living at its very best. San Francisco’s new ferry terminal is nearing completion in early 2022, providing the residents of Yerba Buena Island the convenience of the city moments away. The expansion project includes the construction of up to three new ferry gates that will support new ferry services and enhance Bay Area ease of accessibility.

Mike Leipart, Managing Partner of The Agency Development Group, notes the distinct lifestyle that the island offers: “Owning a home on Yerba Buena Island is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get in from the ground up in the most unique, special setting—a low-density island in the heart of the Bay Area. You get this incredible connection to nature, but also the ability to get anywhere within the city as fast as you would on the mainland—or even faster—with ferry service and proximity to the Bay Bridge.”

Yerba Buena Island was recently featured on the podcast On Site with Shaun Osher. In the episode, listen to Chris Meany Wilson Meany, the developer of Yerba Buena Island, talk about the vision for the project. The episode is available via Spotify, Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, and RSS.
