SummerHill Apartment Communities Wraps Up Work on New Multifamily Project in South San Francisco


Nine88, a new mixed-use, multifamily community situated in the heart of South San Francisco, has been completed and has officially opened its doors to the public. The 172-unit project, a development of SummerHill Apartment Communities, was designed by KTGY.

Located at 988 El Camino Real, the six-story multifamily building includes five levels of residential and courtyard spaces above a pedestrian-scaled podium base that houses a mix of active uses while creatively concealing parking. The double-height ground floor is activated with retail spaces and amenities, enhancing the vibrancy of the communal complex at the corner of El Camino Real and the. Two courtyards, a fitness center, a wifi café with workstations, oversized spa, indoor clubroom for entertaining, and two secure bike rooms round out the slew of amenities.

The project offers a range of units sizes, from studios to two-bedroom units. Overcoming the challenges of an irregularly-shaped parcel and navigating underground utilities and the adjacent BART tunnel, KTGY incorporated 247 underground parking spaces for both retail and resident usage into the design.

Resembling a historic commercial façade, Nine88 truly brings out the essence of South San Francisco. It infuses a contemporary take on traditional elements closely associated with the city’s industrial history, such as red brick and black steel. The building has a welcoming, elegant, pedestrian-friendly frontage along El Camino Real and Chestnut Avenue with a three-story brick façade anchored to the stepped-back floors beyond with exposed I-beam details. Smooth stucco pop-outs above are inspired by bay windows, a traditional element of South San Francisco architecture, and create an interesting rhythm for the front elevation.

Nine88 also features balconies with expansive views towards the iconic Sign Hill as well as private patios enclosed in glass and brick offering respite along the busier street frontages. The 8k sf open space area with direct frontage onto Centennial Way Trail adds a new fitness park, dog park, and provides pedestrians and cyclists with safe connections from the Trail to the Community Civic Campus via new signalized crosswalks.

Other companies involved in the project include: Ryan Young Interiors (interior designer); April Philips Design Works (landscape architect); Carlson, Barbee & Gibson Inc (civil engineer); Giacalone Design Services Inc. (utilities); Patel Burica & Associates Inc (structural engineer); Tuan and Robinson Structural Engineers Inc. (shoring); Emerald City Engineers Inc (MEP engineer); SBI Builders Inc (general contractor); Charles M. Salter Associates Inc (acoustical consultant); and Rockridge Geotechnical (geotechnical/hazmat consultant).
