Just over a year after the official groundbreaking ceremony, crews have topped out the five-story affordable educator housing development at 1360 43rd Avenue in San Francisco’s Sunset District. The Shirley Chisholm Village has replaced a former school and outdoor yard with the low-rise apartment infill designed by BAR Architects with G7A. MidPen Housing is the project developer, and Cahill is the general contractor.
Group I has submitted a second request for Conditional Use authorization to build housing at 770 Woolsey Street in Portola, San Francisco. The plan has been contentious as it will demolish most of the former University Mound Nursery, though a sizable portion of the site will be retained for permanent community use. Iwamotoscott Architecture is responsible for the design.
A $40 million makeover has been proposed for Jackson Park, located in Potrero Hill, San Francisco. The project proposal includes a $40million renovation for the Jackson Park. The San Francisco Recreation & Parks Commission approved the conceptual designs two weeks ago. The renovation project is a joint venture between San Francisco Recreation & Parks and the Friends of Jackson Park (FoJP).
New Building permits have been filed for two affordable infills with a total of 272 apartments at 1633 Valencia Street and 3485 Cesar Chavez Street at the border of Bernal Heights and the Mission District of San Francisco. One permit is listed as a priority under the San Francisco Mayor’s Office’s Executive Directive 13-01, designed by Mayor Ed Lee in 2013 to expedite the approval process for designated plans. Mercy Housing is developing 1633 Valencia Street, and Sequoia Living is developing 3485 Cesar Chavez Street.
Property owner Group I is moving forward with plans to build 62 homes on the former nursery at 770 Woolsey Street in Portola, San Francisco. The proposal will reshape the 2.2-acre property with housing and a community center in two replica greenhouses. The news comes as the owner would not sell the site to Greenhouse Project, a community organization.
