165 Turk & 249 Eddy Streets
Turk and Eddy Apartments comprises two buildings located on adjacent blocks, less than 1,000 feet apart, and consists of 100% Section 8 senior housing. The buildings were at risk of being converted to market rate units, upon the expiration of the Section 8 subsidy, which would have displaced its population of long-term residents, when TNDC acquired the project in January 2007. Renovation was completed in 2010 to preserve their homes. 165 Turk Street is a six-story apartment built in 1923. The ground floor includes a community room, manager’s office, laundry, and an enclosed rear garden. 249 Eddy Street is a seven-story apartment built in 1925. The ground floor of this building includes a community room, laundry, and a tenant services office serving both properties. The rehabilitation of these buildings improved building safety, systems, and accessibility as well as providing safer, healthier and supportive living environments for low-income seniors. Funding was provided by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act – Low Income Housing Tax Credit Exchange, San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, California Housing Finance Agency, and the US Department of Housing.
