San Francisco Business Times: Yerba Buena Island welcomes first residents. We have exclusive photos of the first building.
As construction crews were busy carving the foundations of what someday soon will be 31 townhomes into the side of a hill on Yerba Buena Island on Thursday, a 124-unit condominium building at its foot was already humming with life.

The morning sunlight filtered through the glass framed walls of the lobby of The Bristol as some of the building’s first residents could be seen spilling out of elevators into an open deck lined with garden furniture.

Sitting in a shaded corner that overlooks a courtyard anchored by a Magnolia tree, developer Chris Meany described waking up in the six-story building with underground parking and panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay as “awakening to the spiritual experience” of living in San Francisco.

San Francisco Business Times: Island dreams: New ferry service opens up Treasure Island's development frontier even more
They sit out in the Bay, so close yet so far away, their skyline views and open vistas relatively inaccessible. You can drive or take a bus there via the Bay Bridge, but Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island remain mostly marooned, a pass-through on car trips over the bay. That’s about to change, with ferry service to Treasure Island expected to start by the end of the month. It will be a 6-minute boat ride from downtown San Francisco.

Antiquing in San Francisco:
The new Yerba Buena Island homes in San Francisco offer comfortable, luxurious living in the most picturesque of settings. Nestled amid tree-lined trails, with views of Clipper Cove, the Bay Bridge, and the city, these singular residences create a feast for the eyes that is worthy of a glossy magazine spread. The interiors provide an ideal tableau where residents can imagine their perfect dwelling place. Replete with state-of-the-art amenities and appliances throughout, and a thoughtful selection of natural materials and custom fixtures, all that’s left to fill these modern homes are the personal touches of those who live in them. But furnishing a living space is no simple task. Fortunately, San Francisco is a mecca for furniture, art, antiques, and other bespoke design pieces to fit your own unique sense of style.

A first stop for seekers of antiques should be Grand Central Station Antiques. This San Francisco institution, in business for more than 30 years, is the go-to destination for 18th and 19th century European antiques, sourced from England, Scotland, and continental Europe. Each item here is selected by hand, and the stock of furniture and antiques is replenished every two to three months. That means you’ll likely be able to find a true one-of-a-kind item — whether it’s a majestic hand-carved bed frame, antique sconces, or an Italian walnut coffee table as a centerpiece for your living room — which will last for generations to come.

For even more home-furnishing inspiration, the San Francisco Fall Show is the West Coast’s preeminent art, antique, and design fair. This annual event brings together dozens of dealers who offer a range of art, furniture, jewelry, ceramics, and other goods from around the world and across styles and time periods. This year’s exhibitors will display antiques for the garden (some dating back to the 15th century), as well as midcentury modern furniture, 20th century estate jewelry, American folk art, French Art Deco furniture, Asian antiques, antique rugs, and much more. This year’s event will be held virtually, but will still provide ample opportunity to browse the wide range of offerings, connect with dealers, and find that unique piece to perfectly complement—or dramatically shape—the feel of your Yerba Buena Island home.

With the wealth of local options for bespoke furnishings and design available, residents can make these picturesque new condos in San Francisco truly their own.
Explore the Treasure Island Museum:
Yerba Buena Island is both a window to San Francisco’s past and a portal to its future. The place that brings this most vividly to life is the Treasure Island Museum, where lectures and exhibits give us a glimpse of the city’s long and rich history and the Island’s place in it. The building itself encapsulates the Island’s role in defining the city; and, as a current pioneer in sustainable living, it’s exemplified by the Yerba Buena Island Homes and their attunement with the joy of city life and the inexhaustible richness of northern California nature.

The online exhibit Wish You Were Here: Postcards from the Golden Gate International Exhibition gives a sense of what the island looked like at the time of the fair via the medium through which visitors shared their experience with family and friends. A rich visual map of the island at the time, the exhibit is also a fascinating exploration of early postcards. The cards themselves capture the spirit of that time with their distinctive photographs and graphic design. Many of the photographs were taken by Gabriel Moulin and his studio, which was located on the island so that prints could be developed on-site, creating a thorough visual record. Moulin took shots of the grounds of the fair with its intricate buildings, statues and pavilions, nighttime light displays that could be seen from a hundred miles away, the Food and Beverages Palace, and the Court of Reflections, which featured a reflecting pool and original sculpture. He also captured the feeling of promise and possibility that Yerba Buena Island still evokes today.

The renovation of the museum, housed in the old fairgrounds administration building, which was also at one time used as an airport, is set to include three theater spaces where visitors will be able to participate in community events and lectures, as well as two virtual reality experiences. The Pan Am Clipper experience will simulate a 1930s flight over the Island’s fairgrounds on an air path to Honolulu. The Bay Bridge Cable Walk Experience allows you to “walk” on the newly built bridge with the fairgrounds rounding out the throwback experience made possible by state-of-the-art technology.

Residents of the New San Francisco condos on Yerba Buena Island will find in this museum a source of local pride, a wealth of history to share through generations, and a cultural meeting place to connect with neighbors and the community at large. It's yet another reason that life on Yerba Buena Island offers a unique feeling of connection with San Francisco as it once was and what it will become.
