Treasure Island is a unique asset. Covering more than 400 acres, the island remains one of the largest manmade islands. It has had a colorful history. Originally built to be an airport, the island was host to the 1939 World’s Fair, The Golden International Exposition. During the Second World War, it was converted to a U.S. naval base. It remained a military base until the early 1990’s. However, with the post cold-war base closures, it is being passed to the City of San Francisco for reuse. Visit the official Villages at Treasure Island website for more information.
Welcome to the Villages at Treasure Island – a unique, palm fringed island community with spectacular views. Panoramic views of the San Francisco skyline, Marin, Alcatraz Island, the East Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and a unique view of the Bay Bridge are all just a few steps away from our housing. Residents of the island also enjoy stunning perspectives of Coit Tower, the Embarcadero, the Transamerica Pyramid and countless other familiar landmarks.
The residential area, now under development by the John Stewart Company (under a sublease from the Treasure Island Development Authority of San Francisco), is joining movie studios, a marina, an elementary school and other uses to create San Francisco’s newest neighborhood.
