Transforming open space into housing can be a sensitive issue in densely developed San Francisco. With Arkansas Park, developed on a 1.5-acre parcel of land in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood, perseverance and compromise proved a winning combination. Despite initial community opposition, McKenzie, Rose & Holliday Development won over residents with a mix of affordable and market-rate housing, a community art and performance space, and a new green space. The project was adjacent to the Goodman 2 project, which provided city-mandated housing for ArtsDeco, the nonprofit arts-advocacy organization that was our partner in the project. Arkansas Park, McKenzie, Rose & Holliday Development’s first new construction venture sold out within a year.
