As San Francisco continues to grapple with the demands of an exploding population, several development projects are taking shape to relieve some of the resulting pressures on the local housing situation.
The high-density 1979 Mission development will build 290 new rental units and 41 middle-class for-sale homes on a site presently not used for residential purposes. The funds from the sale of the middle-class homes will be used to fund 49 below market rate affordable housing units for the City.
The project also envisions an additional 32,500 square feet of flexible retail space at 16th and Mission that will be made available to local small businesses in the community.
The project will also expand the area of the BART Plaza at 16th and Mission by 40 percent. This will provide safe, ample outdoor space for local residents to gather and enjoy the great variety of small businesses and local cultural events that the plaza is primed to attract.
