Affordable Housing Transformed

"This is really a transformation from something that was in dire need of repair to something that is beautiful and neighborhood-stabilizing,"
- Steven Fayne, Managing Director, Citi Community Capital

With over 200 units encompassing two city blocks, The King-Garvey Co-op Apartments have been providing affordable housing in the Western Addition for over 40 years. This $45 million extensive property rehabilitation transformed a community and received numerous awards, including:

  • 2012 Best Rehabilitation or Renovation, SF Business Times
  • 2012 Editors' Choice Award, Multi-Family Executive Magazine "for creative land use and financing, fine architecture, and sustainable construction."

In addition to installing a new drought-tolerant landscape, Rubicon Landscape converted the old overhead irrigation system to a drip system,  reusing existing components as appropriate.

"The renovation project transformed the property from a blighting influence on the community to a neighborhood asset and center of community"
Steven Wraight, Director of Design, The Related Company California
