Permits have been filed for new affordable housing at 730 Stanyan Street in Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco. The project is being handled through the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development, while Tenderloin and Chinatown-based community organizations, TNDC & CCDC, will be responsible for development. The project reference Senate Bill 35 and Assembly Bill 1763 to add priority and privileges to the permit.
The permit calls for the project review meeting for a mixed-use building with residential and commercial uses. The developers are planning for all units to be affordable dwellings. While no specific number is specified, the Mayor’s office made clear they expected at least 120 units could be created on the lot. Commercial space will be located on the ground floor, serving the surrounding neighborhood. As it is an affordable housing project, bonuses achieve this future building benefits that other projects cannot utilize. The two most considerable benefits awarded to this specific project are height bonuses and high density.
YA Studio is listed as involved with the project. The firm has worked on at least six other affordable housing developments across the city, including at 2060 Folsom in the Mission District, and downtown with Transbay Block 8.
The future structure will be replacing what is currently a surface lot and one-floor building.
The address is between Waller Street and Haight Street. The 7 MUNI bus stops right in front of the site, offering ample transit access that quickly gets neighborhood residents to downtown San Francisco and other areas as well. The site is across the street from Golden Gate Park, one of the largest urban parks in the city, with many acres of outdoor and indoor amenities.
