Parkmerced Apartments | San Francisco, CA | Greystar Blog

We at Greystar are proud of all of our luxury apartment communities, and this month we would like to shine the spotlight on our Parkmerced San Francisco apartments for rent.

Residents living in our San Francisco apartment community enjoy a beautifully landscaped neighborhood featuring 150 acres of tree-lined streets and perfectly manicured gardens. The community is the largest in San Francisco, boasting 3,221 units including 11 towers with 153 apartments and 1,538 townhomes.

Our Parkmerced apartments possess a rich, vibrant past and are poised to secure an equally inspiring future. Built in the late 1940s to provide housing for military families after World War II, the property is undergoing a complete revitalization that will once again establish the community as a symbol of hope and new beginnings.  Goals for the San Francisco apartments include turning the neighborhood into a model of urban sustainability as America’s first net-zero carbon community and implementing a resident-oriented style of community living that mirrors the city of San Francisco’s advanced approach to social and economic equity.

Conveniently located in Southwest San Francisco, Parkmerced is near Interstate 280 and Highway 1. Public transportation is available via the M-Line which provides Parkmerced residents with easy access to downtown, just 10 miles away. San Francisco International Airport is a short 12 miles from the San Francisco apartment community, and major industry hub Silicon Valley is only 30 miles from our neighborhood.

Just a handful of the numerous area attractions our residents enjoy include Lake Merced, Ocean Beach and the San Francisco Zoo. Golfers residing at Parkmerced can take advantage of five challenging, diverse courses nearby, and residents who like spending time in the great outdoors have access to more than 640 acres of public space that includes scenic walking, hiking and biking trails. 

At Parkmerced, residents’ comfort is top priority. To that end, we offer abundant amenities that make living in our Greystar community convenient and enjoyable. Residents can kick back in the clubhouse, where they can shoot pool, relax by the fireplace or catch the big game with their neighbors on a flat-screen TV.
