HED and Nardi Associates announce collaboration in San Francisco

Press Release from HED

SAN FRANCISCO, June 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- National architecture and engineering firm HED is pleased to announce its recent partnership with architecture and urban design firm Nardi Associates LLP on a new housing development in San Francisco, CA. Together, the two firms have created an independent entity, NH Design Collaborative LLP, to seamlessly collaborate on the new Palmilia By The Bay project.

Palmilia by the Bay

Nardi Associates LLP is the design author of Palmilia By The Bay, as well as the architect of record. HED will be assisting in the execution, leveraging its experience within the City of San Francisco and its large bench of technical and staffing resources.

The partnership was formed to best serve this highly complex mixed-use housing project, but its roots evolved through our initial exploration of wanting to collaborate on the Olympic Tower project, currently under development in downtown Los Angeles.

"This partnership will be an invaluable benefit to our client, Pamilia By The Bay, LLC. Collectively, we bring extensive expertise in housing design, particularly in mixed use and high-rise, and cutting-edge technical resources and expanded staffing capacity to the project," said Norberto F. Nardi, AIA, NCARB, Principal and Founder of Nardi Associates, LLP.

Palmilia By The Bay will be a seven-story, mixed-use residential and retail development with views of San Francisco Bay in Hunters Point, also known as the old shipyard neighborhood of San Francisco. Adjacent to a park and intended for families, the 224 units will vary in configuration from 1 to 3-bedroom condo and rental units.

The project team includes KPFF providing civil engineering, TS Studio performing landscape architecture services, Nabih Youssef Associates providing structural engineering, and Interface Engineering providing MEP design services.
