New Affordable Housing Coming to Candlestick Point

 SFHDC 1  SFHDC 2

August 19, 2016 

The Gateway – 11A Candlestick Point

In partnership with Mercy Housing, the San Francisco Housing Development (SFHDC) announces a new project in Candlestick Point!
 affordable housing

This week, the OCII Commission approved the selection of SFHDC and Mercy Housing to develop a portion of the first newa new gateway affordable housing at Candlestick Point. Block 11A, as the site is known, will be a key gateway to the new neighborhood, and it is a great honor to have been chosen for this project. It is a particularly exciting moment to serve our local community as lead developer. The project will house 150 low-income families (up to 60% of Area Median Income), including approximately 38 formerly homeless families, and 5 Transitional Aged Youth families.

 

We are extremely grateful for our partners at Mercy Housing and LMS Architects, and for the community’s and OCII’s support.

OUR TIMELINE:

Our team will begin the pre-development activity for this project by the end of the year. Construction will likely begin in early 2018.  We would hope to complete construction in late 2019 or early 2020, with a robust marketing and outreach plan along the way, to ensure that as many community residents as possible are aware of and get into this brand new, affordable housing in Bayview Hunters Point.

Stay tuned for professional services opportunities including associate architect and contractor opportunities. We are committed to working with contractors and consultants that provide employment opportunities to residents of the Bayview Hunters Point.
