Originally acquired by the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) in 1987 as housing for individuals and families, Franciscan Towers was under redevelopment for 4 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. TNDC also was able to upgraded the seismic and life safety systems and complete 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 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 administrative offices and the TNDC Tenderloin After-School Program (TASP).
