Building 98 affordable homes in the Richmond District by 2024*
We envision a future where everyone can thrive, regardless of income, race, spoken language, gender identity, and more. 4200 Geary is a key step in helping us build this future by providing 98 affordable homes for seniors with low incomes in San Francisco (between 15-50% AMI), including veterans and seniors who were formerly unhoused.
Located in the Inner Richmond, 4200 Geary will be a seven-story building centering tenant needs. With onsite social workers, front desk coverage, and property management, tenants will have a built-in support network to help them adjust to their new home, feel welcome, and remain stably housed.
In addition to onsite support, 4200 Geary will include a rooftop urban farm on the West upper courtyard offering fresh produce to tenants, landscaped outdoor spaces, a community room with a warming kitchen, and energy efficient fixtures and appliances. Notably, the building design will incorporate features that encourage aging in place, such as wayfinding signage with large text and symbols. The ground-floor will feature a community-serving commercial space and the building exterior will include a public art piece! Notably, 4200 Geary will seek a Platinum GreenPoint rating and is a member of the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) Living Building Challenge.
Construction started in fall 2022 and people are scheduled to move in by summer 2024.
