Franciscan Towers – 217 Eddy Street
February 03, 2012|
Originally acquired by TNDC in 1987 as housing for individuals and families, Franciscan Towers was under redevelopment for four years following a fire in 2011. TNDC rebuilt the fire damaged portions of the building, including the elevator, lobby and approximately 45% of the residential units, upgraded seismic and life safety system and completed additional upgrades to existing building systems and non-fire damaged residential units. The building has 105 units. 35 units are reserved for Shelter Plus Care residents and 13 returning individuals and families. The building has a new mix of units, with more one-bedrooms being built in place of studios, to accommodate more families. Some of the studios are intended to house the formerly homeless, and some are outfitted for the disabled. The building also houses TNDC offices and the Tenderloin After-School Program (TASP).
