Rosa Parks Apartments

Serving 390 seniors living with extremely low incomes 

Rosa Parks is an 11-story, 198-unit building in the Western Addtion for seniors with low incomes. The project was built in partnership with Bethel AME Church and its affiliate, Allen Community Development Corporation, alongside the Rosa Parks Senior Apartments, a building jointly acquired by TNDC and Bethel/Allen in 2016 from the San Francisco Housing Authority as a RAD project.

Located at 1251 Turk Street, the 19 studio apartments, 99 one-bedroom, and 80 two-bedroom apartments are occupied by seniors and people living with a disability.

TNDC and Bethel/Allen managed the occupied rehabilitation of the building ensuring temporary relocation of current residents while coordinating the building’s physical improvements which included new kitchen and bath cabinets and countertops in residential units, upgraded mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, improved fire protections, and new mobility and enhanced communication units. The common area has been significantly improved as well as a reconfiguration of office space for property management and support services.

Rosa Parks also has an impressive urban farm, operated by TNDC's Urban Agriculture team, that provides fresh produce to tenants living in Rosa Parks and the building next door, the Willie B. Kennedy Apartments.

Housing: 179,250 square feet
