History in the making. San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Island community has reached a leafy milestone. The centerpiece of The Bristol made quite an entrance, as the 22-foot Victoria Magnolia tree, weighing 20,000 pounds in its planter, was lowered into the open-air courtyard at the heart of the condominium offering. Set to welcome its first residents in early 2022, The Bristol features 124 residences, from studios to three-bedroom condominiums. The Agency Development Group, which represents marketing and sales at Yerba Buena Island, was there for the big arrival.
The residences at The Bristol showcase floor-to-ceiling windows, gourmet kitchens with Miele appliances, white oak flooring and spa-style baths with Carrara marble vanities. Offering views of Clipper Cove and the Bay Bridge, the building is positioned around the landscaped courtyard, featuring thoughtful design by Hart Howerton and Edmonds + Lee Architects. Amenities within the building include a fitness studio, yoga studio, children’s playroom and rooftop terrace.
The Bristol will be the first offering to debut within the Yerba Buena Island community, which will feature a collection of 266 residences within a ~10-minute ferry ride of Downtown San Francisco. In addition to the condominiums, the community on the naturally formed island in the heart of the bay will feature flats, townhomes, and estate homesites, surrounded by five miles of walking and biking trails and 72 acres of parks and green spaces.
Residents will enjoy a wellness-centric lifestyle, including a private community gathering place, The Island Club, by Aidlin Darling Design. The 10,000-square-foot club captures stunning views of the San Francisco skyline and features an outdoor pool, yoga studio, fitness center, massage rooms, private dining, game room and more.
With excitement for the community’s debut building, the community recently released a video providing a first glimpse of the Yerba Buena Island lifestyle. The community offers the best of both worlds—a nature-focused lifestyle within minutes of Downtown. To immerse potential residents in the experience, the Yerba Buena Islands Sales Gallery is now open, located close to the city’s waterfront. Potential owners can then take a Jeep tour of the island, experiencing the connection to the bay, landscape and surrounding nature for themselves. Commuter ferry service will begin when residents start moving into the community next year.
