San Diego receives $21 million for affordable housing


California Construction News staff writer

The San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) will receive $21 million for projects to create 75 new affordable rental housing units with supportive services at properties in City Council District 2.

“The evidence could not be clearer. Housing ends homelessness — specifically homes with support services that meet the unique needs of people experiencing homelessness,” said Council President Sean Elo-Rivera. “This funding will allow us to rapidly transform the lives of 75 of San Diego’s most vulnerable residents. This is a huge win for San Diego.”

The County of San Diego Board of Supervisors has also approved funding to support projects.

The State awarded $16.9 million for SDHC’s proposed purchase and rehabilitation of the Ramada Inn at 3737-3747 Midway Dr. in the Midway Community to create 62 affordable single-room occupancy (SRO) units, to be known as Pacific Village. An additional $3.9 million from the State will support SDHC’s collaboration with Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation to rehabilitate a vacant multifamily housing property at 2147 Abbott St. in Ocean Beach to create 13 affordable housing units.

SDHC also has applied for $63.5 million through a statewide competition for the current round of limited Homekey funding for the proposed purchase and rehabilitation of two additional properties that would produce 266 affordable housing units:

  • $28.5 million for 3860 Murphy Canyon Rd. in Kearny Mesa, which would create 105 affordable SRO units with supportive services, to be known as Willow Canyon.
  • $35 million 2087 Hotel Circle S. in Mission Valley, which would create 161 affordable SRO units with supportive services, to be known as Presidio Palms.
