Thanks to SF Gate for sharing the news that San Francisco’s Stonestown Galleria Mall is poised for a massive transformation.

San Francisco’s Planning Commission unanimously approved the plans to redevelop the shopping center, located at 3251 20th Ave., to revamp the underutilized parking lots into 6 acres of new parks, plus a new town square, a senior center, a child care facility, and 3,500 new units of housing.

The approximately 43-acre privately-owned site is comprised of an 11-acre shopping center (Stonestown Galleria), 3 acres of streets, and 27 acres of surface parking lots.

The vast majority of the existing Stonestown Galleria would remain part of the future development, and the 27 acres of surface parking lots would be transformed into a predominantly residential neighborhood with up to 3,500 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”.

Project Elements:

  • 3,500 New Residential Units from 3-18 Floors with 20% Affordable Housing
  • 6 Acres of Parks, Plazas & Town Square
  • New Merchant Lane on 20th Ave.
  • On-Site Childcare Center (100 Child Capacity)
  • Senior Village (200 Units of Senior Housing with Priority for Veterans) and a New 7,000 SF On-Site Senior Center
  • Convenient Underground and Above Ground Parking
  • Connections to Walk, Bike & Scoot Safely

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.

Although the project has moved one step closer to fruition, the plans still need to be approved by the Board of Supervisors.
