Initial development permits reveal plans to develop a parcel next to the Balboa Park BART station into an affordable housing project on 2340 San Jose Avenue in Ocean View, San Francisco. The project proposal consists of constructing 121 residential units and 12,000 square feet of retail space, community service space, and a child care center on the lot. The proposed site is currently used as a parking lot. Mithun | Solomon is managing the design and construction. The affordable housing complex will be developed by Mission Housing Development Corporation and Related California.
Construction of the thirteen-story mixed-use tower at 1001 Van Ness Street, San Francisco, has topped out as the facade nears completion. We last covered the site in early October, when the concrete structure was just eight stories high, and the first facade panels were installed. Designed by Handel Architects, the building will bring a new center for assisted senior living along the city’s fast-developing Van Ness corridor and the Fillmore District. Related Companies and Atria Senior Living are managing the development through a joint venture.
BART has announced that they have picked two developers to form a joint venture for 780 new residences around the El Cerrito Plaza BART Station, with 49% units as affordable, and a public library. Related California and Holliday Development were chosen. The joint venture now must negotiate the terms of agreement with BART to start the two-to-three-year process of producing a development concept.
Permits have been filed for a large multifamily project at 242 Hahn Street in Sunnydale, San Francisco. Plans for the site call for a 167-unit multifamily structure as part of the Sunnydale HOPE SF project, for the projected cost of $80 million. 242 Hahn will contribute to the 1,770 new apartments expected for the sprawling mid-density development.
A planned new hub is under review for a corner of John McLaren Park at Sunnydale, by the southern edge of San Francisco.

It is a nearly twelve thousand square foot destination for exercise, meetings, and various events. The city’s Park Department is developing the project in concert with Mercy Housing and Related California.
