Breaking Ground on 78 Haight in Hayes Valley


Dated 3.31.2022

We’re excited to announce that TNDC is breaking ground on our first affordable housing building in Hayes Valley this April! 78 Haight will provide 63 affordable homes with onsite social services for transitional age youth (TAY) from ages 18-24 who were formerly unhoused and 27 homes for adults with low incomes.

78 Haight will be a seven-story building with a one-of-a-kind art mural mounted on solar panels! With onsite social work for youth by Larkin Street Youth Services and social work for adults provided by TNDC, 24/7 front desk coverage, and onsite Property Management, tenants will have a built-in support network to help them adjust to their new home, feel welcome, and remain stably housed.

The building community will primarily serve young people—a group that is often overlooked in discussions around homelessness. Young people deserve to pursue their dreams, learn, and enjoy life, but too many experience life circumstances that result in homelessness. Over 1,100 young people are unhoused in San Francisco, and a disproportionate amount are youth of color and identify as LGBTQ+.

By dedicating housing to young people coming out of homelessness, we’re providing a foundation for youth to stabilize and build their future.

In addition to the building’s onsite support, 78 Haight will offer a rooftop garden, bicycle parking, two community rooms—one focused specifically for youth—and a nonprofit childcare center on the ground-floor. Aligning with our commitment to sustainable construction, 78 Haight is aiming to earn a LEED Gold Certification—the second highest LEED certification for sustainable construction.

We look forward to hosting an official groundbreaking ceremony with Mayor Breed, partners, and the community that made this building possible!

A special thanks to our 78 Haight project partners and funders: Paulett Taggart Architects, Guzman Construction Group-Suffolk Joint Venture, Regent Construction Management, LLC, California Housing Partnership Corporation, the San Francisco Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD), Merritt Community Capital Corporation, and Silicon Valley Bank.
