Fletcher Studio designed the hardscape, fencing, streetscape, and planting for Fillmore Park. To celebrate the Fillmore District’s long history as a center for live musical performances, projects central court features a planter in the form of a guitar. The vegetation for the project is based on ecological banding: The rear garden feeds butterflies, the mews creates seeds for songbirds, the central courtyard is planted with aloes that make nectar for hummingbirds, and the streetscape has night-blooming species that support moths. The Landscape scope included an on structure courtyard, unit patios, community dining/area, and streetscape. 1345 Turk Street offers thirty-two affordable new homes for first-time homebuyers, specifically working families and individuals earning between 70 and 100% of Area Medium Income, and 24 available parking spaces. Flats and townhouses with outdoor patios ring a private landscaped courtyard, creating a quiet community just a block from the bustling Fillmore District and walking distance to shopping, entertainment and transportation. The project is part of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency’s Limited Equity Program, which seeks to increase affordable homeownership opportunities for San Franciscans.
