Prosper Construction Development

180 Steuart St., San Francisco, CA 94119

Prosper Construction Development started with a couple of developers who renovated old houses in San Francisco. As word spread of their work, more and more residents hired them for a variety of residential projects, from foundation repairs and kitchen remodels to custom home construction. Over the years, the group grew to include an engineer, architect, and interior designer capable of providing complete design-build services. By 2012, the company evolved into a full-service Bay-Area construction and project-management company.

One of the firm’s elegant works is this renovated home on Marietta Drive in Oakland.
