For the last twelve days of the year, SF YIMBY will look back on each month to reflect on the biggest stories we covered. This month saw new renderings for various major projects across San Francisco and groundbreaking for new affordable housing and a life sciences project. YIMBY also toured a new dense energy-efficient apartment infill at 361 Turk Street.
Central Subway project
The San Francisco Examiner has reported that the SFMTA Board of Directors expects major infrastructure work to be completed by March 31st for the city’s new Central Subway Project. The project is a 1.7-mile extension of the Muni Metro light rail’s T Third Line, adding four new light rail stations from SoMa to Chinatown, three of which will be underground. The existing light rail system has seven lines stopping at 120 different locations. The Central Subway Project has been in the works since the Federal Transit Administration approved preliminary engineering in 2002. The four stations are expected to begin operation in the Spring of 2022.
