Roberts-Obayashi Corp. GSF OF ADDITIONS 88,287 D AT E O F C O M P L E T I O N January 2019 Located just 10 miles from downtown San Francisco, the Rotary Terrace Senior Housing project formally opened its doors in May 2019. The new apartments provide 80 residential units of much-needed affordable housing for senior citizens (over 55 years of age) and one unit for the manager. The Rotary Terrace community transformed an underdeveloped area near downtown South San Francisco. Part of a new zoning ordinance, the .56 acre property was identified as an ideal location for higher density, transit-friendly development. The high-density design makes efficient use of the limited site acreage by wrapping the building around lushly landscaped courtyards, thus maximizing light and air to units and common spaces as well as providing a protected interior courtyard for the residents. The elegant exterior treatment has become the signature of Rotary Terrace and a symbol of the transformation from decrepit urban center to a healthy, safe and high-quality multi-generational neighborhood. FROM THE JURY "Community is really strong here. The first floor open area provides gathering spaces for informal or formal engagements. The outdoor space provides even more opportunities for residents to meet or just be outside."
