In the News: Palisades at The SF Shipyard Architect Featured in the San Francisco Chronicle

San Francisco Shipyards

Lennar partnered with renowned architect, Ron Metzker, vice president and principal of LPAS, to create unparalleled home designs at the Palisades community – a collection of upscale single-family detached townhomes at The SF Shipyard. Metzker and his work on the Palisades was recently featured in a designer profile published in the San Francisco Chronicle.

“At the Shipyard, for example, people love the open floor plan where spaces can be tailored to fit individual needs,” he told the Chronicle. “It allows them to personalize, not one big open space, but has intimate spaces such as window seats to provide additional character. Open space and rooftop terraces are also premium amenities in the City. That was a big deal.”

He also explains a redesign behind Palisade’s 66 detached single-family homes and why it’s attracting buyers.

“Each home has terraces on multiple levels including a large roof top terrace with views of the bay and surrounding city. Each home is also detached from neighboring homes with no common walls for superior acoustic separation. Shared open space is also accommodated with a series of pocket parks that are interspersed between clusters of single family homes.” He said.

Palisades at The SF Shipyard offers a variety of new townhomes that provide 1,510 square feet, three bedrooms, two and one-half bathrooms and two-bay garages. Complete with the homebuilder’s signature Everything’s Included® program, each home comes with upgrades and features such as Bosch® stainless steel appliances, washer and dryer, quartz kitchen countertops, integrated home automation and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ designs for whole-home connectivity all at no additional cost.
