Stonestown

The Stonestown Development Project (Project) proposal is a mixed-use, multi-phased master-planned development located on the west side of San Francisco, immediately north of San Francisco State University, west of 19th Avenue, south of Eucalyptus Drive, and east of Lowell High School. 

The 40.9-acre privately-owned site is comprised of an 11-acre shopping center (Stonestown Galleria), 3 acres of streets, and 26.9 acres of surface parking lots.

The vast majority of the existing Stonestown Galleria would remain part of the future development, and the 26.9 acres of surface parking lots would be transformed into a predominantly residential neighborhood with up to 2,900 housing units and additional uses including parks and plazas, retail, community amenity space, office, and structured parking. The Project also proposes to make improvements to the street network, circulation, and utilities. Collectively, the existing shopping center and new uses would make up a new neighborhood or “Town Center”. 

Brookfield Properties (Project Sponsor) proposes to enter into a Development Agreement (DA) with the City accompanied by a site-specific rezoning of the property to include a Special Use District (SUD) that implements the project.
 

The sponsor filed the project application on December 1, 2021, which officially begins the project’s entitlement process, including its environmental and design review.

It is anticipated to take approximately 2+ years to complete the entitlement process, and construction would begin in 2024, as shown in the image below. The City and the sponsor would work together to ensure the project is developed with collaboration from residents and many other stakeholders .
