Fillmore Park offers 32 affordable new for sale units for first-time homebuyers who are working families or individuals earning between 70 and 100% of the area medium income.
Flats and townhouses with outdoor patios ring a private landscaped courtyard, creating a quiet community just a block from the bustling Fillmore District, within walking distance to shopping, entertainment, and transportation. Units range from one to three bedrooms. The four-story complex is clad in fiber-cement boards, with one bay sheathed in copper.
Referencing the Fillmore District’s long history as a center for live musical performances, the garden court features a planter in the form of a guitar, filled with drought-tolerant aloes.
One of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency’s last projects to be built, the 57,402-squarefoot complex is part of the agency’s limited equity program, which seeks to increase affordable homeownership opportunities for San Franciscans. Twenty-four parking spaces are tucked underground.
