As three separately-financed developments in a single structure, the project site was vertically subdivided into separate parcels for each piece. The 88 studios, financed through the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency and tax credits, will replace SOMA SRO housing lost in the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. Nine of the studios house people living with AIDS. The 74 apartments, comprised of one, two, and three bedroom units and financed through the Mayor’s Office of Housing and tax exempt bonds, house working families. The housing sits above 22,000 square feet of privately-financed commercial space that includes a childcare center, a grocery store, and other neighborhood-serving organizations. TNDC’s commitment to enhancing the broader neighborhood is reflected in the developments’ significant ground-floor commercial activity, and in the range of housing affordability and housing types. A joint venture with Citizen’s Housing Corporation, this building was completed in 2003.
