Equity Residential commemorated the opening of Daggett Plaza this week with a ribbon-cutting attended by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Supervisor Malia Cohen, and community members. The developer committed $2.5 million to convert the former one-block long Daggett Street into a one-acre public park.
Located in San Francisco’s Design District, the $4.9-million park is adjacent to Equity Residential’s Potrero 1010 apartment community. The land remains 100% owned by the City, though Equity Residential plans to permanently maintain it.
Mayor Lee said, “In order to provide new open spaces to match our growth, significant funding beyond existing City resources is necessary to develop and maintain new amenities that continue to support livability in San Francisco.”
The park features a large lawn area for general recreation, architectural features that double as play and sitting areas, ADA compliant accessibility, a new public art installation, drought-resistant trees and landscaping and a fenced-in dog park.
