Visitacion Valley Transit-Oriented Development (VVTOD) Project


Located in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley neighborhood, the 20-acre project site was once the home of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company (SPRR) railyard and the Schlage Lock Factory, transferred to Universal Paragon Corporation (UPC), and now being developed by Visitacion Development LLC. The site is the subject of:

  • Existing buses and transit, including two stops on San Francisco Muni’s T-Third Street light-rail in addition to the CalTrain Bayshore station.
  • The closed Schlage Lock Company factory, one of the last machine-making operations in San Francisco, including a historic office building that will be preserved and is eligible to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
  • A national model for community-based planning and neighborhood revitalization.
  • Multi-year environmental remediation prior to development, restoring the earth to above-standard conditions.

The goals for the Schlage Lock site lead toward the kind of growth that will increase the overall quality of the community and the region – economic revitalization, transit-oriented growth, and improvements in quality of life. The community has articulated goals to create a livable, mixed-use urban community; a site design that encourages walking, biking, and the use of mass transit; and a network of well designed open spaces, public resources and amenities. UPC has articulated these fundamental goals in the proposed development of our property in Visitacion Valley.
