Five new affordable housing projects will span several neighborhoods across San Francisco including Bernal Heights, Sunset, Potrero Hill, Alamo Square, and Forest Hill. They will also benefit from state and local laws aimed at streamlining the approval and construction of affordable housing.
“Delivering affordable housing funding to projects across our entire city is a key part of our strategy to create more housing in San Francisco,” said Mayor London Breed. “We have a lot more work to do to remove barriers to getting housing built faster and advancing more affordable housing, but this is a great step and I want to thank the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development for their work to advance projects like these.”
Development teams and sties were selected as a result of this competitive procurement.
Selected projects Include:
- 1234 Great Highway – Developed by Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation and Self-Help for the Elderly (District 4)
- 650 Divisadero Street – Developed by Jonathan Rose Company, Young Community Developers. (District 5)
- 250 Laguna Honda Boulevard – Developed by Mission Housing Development Corporation (District 7)
- 3300 Mission Street – Developed by Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center, Tabernacle Community Development Corporation, Mitchellville Real Estate Group. (District 9)
- 249 Pennsylvania Avenue – Developed by Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation, Young Community Developers (District 10)
“For years, neighbors on the Divisadero corridor have demanded more affordable homes. This is a major step forward in meeting those demands and creating opportunities for working people and their families to have a place in this community,” said District 5 Supervisor Dean Preston. “I appreciate that the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development has prioritized the acquisition of this site for affordable housing, and I look forward to partnering with MOHCD, the development team, and the community to develop affordable housing on this site as quickly as possible.”
“I am thrilled that 3300 Mission Street is a 2023 NOFA recipient,” said Supervisor Hilary Ronen. “I am so grateful to the Bernal Heights Housing Corporation and their development partners for getting this acquisition across the finish line.
“These affordable housing units and the activation of the commercial ground floor will bring meaningful change to the Mission corridor and Bernal Heights community.”
