Visitacion Valley Eichlers - Geneva Towers & Terraces

Geneva Terrace townhouses developed by Joseph Eichler in Visitacion Valley. In the early 1960s, Joseph Eichler enlisted the help of architect Claude Oakland to design affordable housing in the transitional neighborhood of Visitacion Valley in San Francisco.

The result of this endeavor was the:

  • Geneva Terrace Townhouses complex, and the
  • Geneva Towers high-rise apartment building

The 189-unit Geneva Terrace townhouse complex sprawled across 8 neighboring streets and represented somewhat of a diversion from the progressive, modern design that exemplified Joseph Eichler & Eichler Homes.  All of the townhomes were identical in design and consisted of two-story, 4 bedroom homes with a non-descript, red-brick facade and arched windows.   

Eichlers second project in Visitacion Valley was Geneva Towers, an 18-story twin-tower high rise apartment complex located near the intersection of Garrison Avenue & Schwerin Street in San Francisco's District 10.

The Geneva Towers consisted of 573 apartments with four distinct floor plans. The original goal of this project was to provide affordable rentals to working class professionals however the Towers eventually became subsidized housing for low-income residents.

In 1995, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) closed the Geneva Towers which had become a hotbed for crime and was becoming prohibitively expensive to maintain.

On May 16, 1998, the Geneva Towers were imploded, marking an end to the Geneva Towers development.

While the Geneva Towers cease to exist, the Geneva Terrace townhomes still exist and continue to serve as affordable housing for San Francisco families. Townhomes in the Geneva Terrace development currently sell in the $400k-$550k price range.
