Major rehabilitation has been proposed for a housing project at 20 Franklin Street in Civic Center, San Francisco. The project proposal includes the rehabilitation of an 100% affordable housing project to bring structural upgrades, new residential units, and renovations. Mercy Housing California is the property owner.
The building is classified as a category A historic building, and the rehabilitation will consist of the following: voluntary seismic upgrade, waterproofing repairs, updates to the MEP systems, the addition of one or more accessible units, new communication units, modernization of two elevators, and common area updates/renovations. Retail space spanning an area of 6,687 square feet has been proposed.
A project review meeting to discuss the rehabilitation has been proposed. The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
Clarification: The renovations will be discussed with residents beforehand, and once complete, all residents will be able to move back into their existing apartments, and rent will not change. This application represents the start of the permitting process with the city.

Improved affordable housing in a public transportation available area is great. Hopefully a secured bicycle parking area will be included.
