Sunnydale Block 9 achieves Vertical Design approval

Posted on: March 7, 2023

Congratulations to the Sunnydale Block 9 team that achieved Vertical Design approval this week!

Located at the central intersection of Sunnydale Avenue and Santos Streets, Block 9 embodies a spirit of quiet elegance and welcome. The 95-unit building features a double height lobby fronted by a generous entry court and linear park as well as two courtyards, one facing north to the McLaren Park hills, and one facing south to Sunnydale Ave, a linear park and the neighborhood beyond.

Block 9 is the sixth, 100% affordable housing development in the Sunnydale HOPE SF redevelopment of a former SFHA site. The new neighborhood, also master planned by VMWP from 2007 to 2017, will include approximately 1,700 units, with new streets, parks and infrastructure.
