The project team and city officials gathered last week to celebrate the grand opening of Kapuso at the Upper Yard, a nine-story affordable housing project at 2340 San Jose Avenue in San Francisco’s Outer Mission neighborhood. The project has created 131 low- to moderate-income family homes on public land owned by BART and developed in partnership with Related and the Mission Housing Development Corporation. State Senator Scott Wiener, author of Senate Bill 35, which provided Kapuso a clear path for approval, attended the event.
Renderings have been revealed for a new two-story Carpenter’s Union Hall at 3433 3rd Street by San Francisco’s India Basin. The project will create a new office and assembly space for the Carprtner Local Union 22 members. Equity Community Builders and Badiner Urban Planning are collaborating on the application.
New renderings have been published alongside an updated construction timeline for 2530 18th Street in San Francisco’s Mission District. The development will create a new home for the Homeless Prenatal Program resource agency and 73 new affordable homes. HPP is working with the developer Mercy Housing. Construction is expected to begin in Spring 2024.
Demolition permits have been filed for the existing single-story terminal building of Transbay Block 2 at 200 Folsom Street in SoMa, San Francisco. The permit was proceeded by new building permits from mid-November of last year for two future affordable housing developments with a total of 335 homes. The city’s planning department has yet to issue the permits to both developer, Mercy Housing, and the Chinatown Community Development Center.
New plans have been filed for a transit-oriented residential infill next to a VTA Light Rail Station in San Jose, Santa Clara County. The proposal will replace the surface parking lots by Capitol Station at 600 East Capital Express with 203 affordable homes, retail, and landscaped open space. MidPen Housing, an affordable housing developer, is listed as responsible for the project.
