To kick off a decade-long redevelopment project that will add 5,679 new housing units in San Francisco, developers Parkmerced Investors LLC unveiled designs for the first five multifamily structures that will begin construction in the city’s southwest side in February 2016.

"Thank goodness we’re finally talking about housing on the west side of town and in great quantities," Michael Theriault, Secretary of the San Francisco Building and Construction Trades Council, told the San Francisco Business Times. "This won't be the cookie-cutter approach from the original Parkmerced."

Currently, the site is filled with vacant lots. The first five buildings are expected to add about 1,000 units to the metro area’s housing stock in an area that has seen little new residential construction despite the recent real estate boom.

Here are the designs released by San Francisco’s Planning Commission:


21 & 25 Chumasero Drive, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill


1188 & 1198 Junipero Serra Blvd., designed by Kwan Henmi


300 Arballo Drive, designed by LMS Architects


455 Serrano Drive & 850 Gonzalez Drive, designed by Woods Bagot


99 Vidal Drive, designed by Fourgeron Architecture
