Kirkham Heights Apartments

Named for its hillside location, the current Kirkham Heights property offers Westlake Urban an opportunity to modernize living amenities and improve community connections in the Inner Sunset neighborhood. Given its size, transit-rich location and proximity to UCSF, the site is appropriate for additional homes and a mix of housing types that will serve many income levels. Our goal is to create a plan that retains housing affordability, offers abundant open space, provides well-designed pedestrian and transit connections, and offers an exceptional experience for the residents at Kirkham Heights and the surrounding community alike.
