Residential | NIBBI BROS. – HUNTERS VIEW PHASE 1 • Project cost: $62 million • Location: San Francisco • Scope of work: Multifamily residential revitalization Nibbi Bros. – Hunters View Phase 1 »Nibbi Bros. is helping redevelop dilapidated public housing buildings. Residents of the demolished phase 1 buildings have been relocated to vacant units in buildings that will be transformed during future phases of the project after residents move into the new phase 1 buildings. Future phases of the project will also contain marketrate and for-sale units, as well as retail, community centers, and open space.

A San Francisco builder, Nibbi commonly builds on steeply graded sites. On the Hunters View project, which had grades as steep as 20 percent, Nibbi added on-site stairs, as well as taking other precautions to ensure the safety of workers and schedule momentum. In fact, Project Manager Phil Raymann says the safety protocols used on the site will be incorporated into Nibbi’s safety manual for future projects. Nibbi also had to take great care with the “serpentine rock” to prevent the spread of naturally occurring asbestos during construction on this project.
