Fourth & Folsom Family Housing
San Francisco, California
MMP is providing landscape design for this eight-story, urban infill, affordable housing project. Located above the future SFMTA light rail Fourth Street/Moscone Station, the entire project is uniquely placed on structure. A street level community center opens to a planted courtyard, providing additional social gathering space. The seventh floor features several garden spaces and a children’s play area. The rooftop features a green roof that will act as a venue for urban agriculture, with a garden for residents and a farm tended by a private vendor.
Stormwater management is a challenge on the site. For the seventh-floor gardens, we designed terraced planters with spillways guiding water from one to another to better control stormwater flow and treatment. The rooftop landscape is a qualifying green-roof, which gains more credits towards meeting state mandates for stormwater management.
